this museum closed in 2016, I believe. Has anyone heard anything about what happened to their mostly New Haven Railroad collection?

Did any of it go to other museums?

Actually the caboose was moved to the Fore River Transportation railroad shops in November by its new owner. It left Mass Coastal property in October.

The former Pawtucket yard building and some signal parts were acquired by the Railroad Museum of New England. The yard building is currently displayed at Thomaston CT. Signal parts are being used on signals which are currently being prepared for display also at Thomaston, near the passenger station.
