Here are photos of two New Haven Trap Rock - Branford Steam Railroad 0-4-0T's at the quarry located in Branford, CT. Branford Steam RR was one of the oldest rail lines in Connecticut but was not a common carrier, just a long spur from this quarry to the New Haven Railroad Shore Line.

NHTR 38:


NHTR 43:


Next week a couple of passenger terminal photos.

A little traction action from the trolley faction...

The lovely Peter Witt car at the Baltmore Streetcar Museum.  Hard to believe this was discovered serving as a produce stand out Reisterstown Road...  They did a great job restoring it.


Another view of the same guy.


This was the last car in revenue service on the #8 line in  November 1963.  If you believe everyone who says it, there were 9,876 people riding in the car on that trip...


These are old SEPTA cars, I assume they are either for parts to keep the BTC car alive, or two will be Frankensteined into one so there's a second PCC car operable.


Also recently arrived from SEPTA, a work car.  Again, either for parts or restoration.  If anyone knows more about these cars than I do, please do fill in the blanks.

Since so many posts have been added to the previous weeks' thread since I started this one, this is to remind all that the topic for March 15th was added as well.  ::)

Gregg, I think when daylight savings started, some folks set their calendars ahead one week!

Since the topic from the previous week keeps jumping above this one, I will repost the first photo I ever scanned and posted to the web:



It is Godchaux Sugar Porter 0-6-4T No. 7 on the 3 ft. guage trackage at the sugar mill in Reserve, Louisiana, in 1958.
