Boston & Maine Business Car #1

Postby gokeefe » Sat Sep 23, 2017 6:58 pm

Lately in some research I've come across this business car which was "BM 1".

Per available service history information here it was originally MC 1 then MC 8 and then NYC 8 and sold to BM in 1953.

After that it seems to disappear.

What happenned to this car?

George,

The first link went to a deadend for me. I'm wondering if anyone else had the same trouble.

I've had trouble with it before.

Glad I downloaded it when it came up.

Try this.

Took a while, but it eventually came up. Thanks! That is a great looking piece of equipment.

Hi
Just wondering could someone from the BOSTON & MAINE Historical Society please answer the question? What has happened to B&M Business car Number 1? Is it still with us, or has it been scrapped?

Maybe McGinnis traded it for a boxcar full of lobsters...

I'm just intrigued by the fact that no one seems to have any idea where or what happened to this car. That's pretty surprising ...
