Yesterday in South Dakoda, off I-90 on the south side was a "frontier museum" with  40' wooden boxcar- at 75+ it was hard to see much more than that - but frontier it was not.

Gene;
At Connecticut Valley Railroad", there is, at the entrance, a string of cars (static) headed by a rather diminutive 2-6-2.  Most of these cars would be classed as "antiquity", but I doubt if any of them are pre-1900.  They do have that "appeal" though-the kind that makes us want to rush right home and start work on those freight cars...

Rich,

I saw that string of cars there a few years ago. You are correct, most are of 1905-1920 construction. I have a few photos here somewhere, but alas, no way to post them at present.
