I remember my relatives formerly of CT sending a newspaper article on a gent whose father and bought Pullmans and moved them to his home. 15 or so years ago they were disposed of, one or more to the Valley Railroad? Anyone have a story or roster and their disposition?

Regards,

Joshua

Two of those, ex Boston and Maine, may be the ones now at the Illinois Railway Museum in Union.

Jim Bradley was the man who collected them in his Stonington, CT backyard.

From what I know Illinios has none of them.

One went to the Valley Railroad in Essex, CT. "Great Republic"

One went to a private owner, the "Fox Point"

The rest went to the Railroad Museum of New England and all are stored there. "Forrest Hills" #603 saw some work done to it a year or so ago to redo the roof to protect the car.

The "Philinda" #610, "Staghound" and "Breslin Tower" are stored awaiting thier turn in the restoration que.

Here's a better article on Bradley's Pullmann collection. One other interesting note is that FL-9 # 2019 that is mentioned in that article is also now preserved at RMNE and is infact one of the regularly used excursion engines.
