CNJ 1198 and 1204

Postby eehiv » Mon Sep 22, 2014 9:36 pm

The CMRR owns two former CNJ coaches that it acquired in 1984. They have been in storage outside Kingston, NY for 30 years.

These coaches are no longer on the CMRR's long-term restoration plans.

They were recently primed, and the interiors are still mostly untouched.

Anyone interested in acquiring these coaches please contact me through a private message.

That is great that someone wants them to preserve.
Too many end up in the scrap piles!

Anyone know what the weight is of the one on the trucks trailer?
