Post subject:  Guilford getting rid of equipment

According to Guilford's web site, they are looking to get rid of the
following items:

*Coach & Food Service Passenger Car #391 - Postwar Pullman Standard -
Last used in 1986.

*Coach MEC 970 - Former Maine Central wreck train camp car.

*Coach B&M 1111 - Former Boston & Maine wreck train camp car.

*Coach AMTRAK 5616 - Coach never operated in Guilford Rail System

*Wreck Crane - MEC 180 - Built: 1922 Rebuilt: 1957 120 ton capacity
6 1/2 x 12 roller bearing trucks. Total weight: 258900 lbs. D326
Caterpillar engine. Last operated in July 1984.

*Wreck Crane - MEC 160 - Friction bearing trucks. Last repack July
1984. Self-propelling feature on front and rear trucks.

Some of the cranes could be hidden away at EDY, but I think the
coaches/camp cars are probably all stashed away in Waterville. If you
ever look back there (from public property, of course) behind the east
end of Waterville, you will see a bunch of old coaches, cars, cranes,
etc. Not to mention engines (depending on when you go).
