There is no exact scrap date...My notes show it was placed inside BET March 2006 for removal of parts,
once that was done it was scrapped outside. Hoever, it probably dragged into at at least April 2006.

If I remember corectly about the incident with 1301 at Beverly Farms that the engineer of the control car perished and also there was a railfan riding the B&M engine . Please corect me if I got the story mixed up. My memory is not as sharp as it once was.
Farewell old friend thanks for the memories.
