Spine Cars on the Battenkill!

Spine Cars on the Battenkill……Er….let me change that....Spine Cars On The Hudson!

I had heard that spine cars have been stored on The Battenkill Railroad.  Imagine my surprise to find them pushed all the way to the end of the line in Thompson.  This is the first time in decades that cars have been stored this deep on the BKRR.  Heck, it's been years since they've served H&V at Ondawa , which is a few miles up the line.  The last I remember a train going to Thompson was for a demonstration on the line when there was talk of shipping GE sludge by the BK.

If anyone has photos of these cars being pushed to Thompson, please let me know!

These cars are monsters!

And brand new!!!!
