Ex B&M SW-1 1111

In November 1960, B&M SW-1's 1109 - 1110 - 1111 were sold to the Montpelier & Barre, the latter, 1111 was kept at Montpelier out behind the shop for parts. As we all know, the 1109 and 1110 have been saved, but what became of the 1111? The last time I saw her was 1972, anyone in Vermont know what happened when the M&B was sold?

According to David Poor's roster#1111 was used for parts and donated to and restored by B&M historical society.

Dave,

the 1110 was cut up several years ago as well. as received it was severely vandalized during delivery to the RMNE. long stored @ Saybrook it was decided to cut versus move to the Naugy. the prime mover is the biggest piece saved among other parts saved for the 1109, which will remain a static display.
