GoFundMe: Help move Long Island RR caboose #29

Post by Adirondack » Tue Mar 12, 2019 11:11 am

Hi folks. While the car itself is secure for the moment, it does need to be moved by a certain date this spring. Any contribution will help.

Thanks

Hey folks, for the price of a cup of coffee (not even a good one), you could help preserve history. There is a deadline before it will be scrapped, and it is not that far off.

Thanks!

Any clues where it’s going to end up?

The Valley Railroad just did a superb job restoring an NH caboose.

Not 100% sure. It was more important to save it and then sort out where it will land upon completion.
