From the DIrector of Kennebunkport Trolley Museum regarding LIRR 29:
"LIRR did not get scrapped—it is actually being relocated this spring to a piece of commercial land in South Portland that already contains 800 feet of former track still intact, and will be restored there, to be used as an AirBNB."

Definitely not. Looking at the list C70 is missing, could this be it?

NYA- C-52 was LIRR C-65. Why and when they renumbered it I don’t know.
LI/NYA C-62 was later sub leased or sold to LIRC and renumbered to 105. Can we confirmed the lease/sale?
LI/NYA C-70 was confirmed burned and scrapped. I found a date of around 2003 but looking to build out of the fire was then it the scrapping.

70 was stored in Bush Terminal for about a 5 years before it was sent to Gershow to be scrapped around 2004.

Dauntless,
Thanks for your input, as I’m compiling an updated roster.
Do you know of any photos of the hack while down in Bush?
And or if the fire was in 2003 and scrapped in 2004? Ect.
Thanks again.

It went from Bush to Bay Ridge around 2004, and was scrapped by 2006. It sat at Gershow for a bit before they scrapped it. Twin Forks was allowed to pick through it but there was nothing left by then for parts.

Was this "...Gershow siding.." incorrect as sent to me?

Yeah. Gershow's incorrect, bush terminal's also incorrect. The 6 big ol telecom dishes give this away as the army terminal.

Wouldn't this be 65th St. Yard with the Army terminal north in the background?
