Does anyone want Northampton & Bath caboose 102, probably built by Magor Car Co. in 1930, possibly for the Lehigh & New England? It has 4-3/4 x 8 journals.
It's now on Tyburn RR at Fairless, Pa. (across the river from Trenton, N.J.). It was moved from N&B on a large tilt bed truck of about 43,000 lbs. capacity. After trying for many years to sell it, TYBR's management suddenly wants to get rid of it.
