Bill McGregor with CSL 144 on Barn 4 curve, April 1979.  The car has derailed and needs to be carefully jacked up to get it back on the track.  Bill was the recognized expert at this.

Does anyone know what happened to the PRR motorcar?

Herb sold it to Clint Jones. As far as we know it's still at Escanaba.

The NSL 202 is a repeat, but that's OK.
That's the Hines 4062 (also scrapped) in front of the YS&T 607. I see that Frank has linked it as such on the deaccessioned list.
The SSL 8 is coupled to the SSL 34, both acquired at the same time (1984).

Thanks for the additional info, Bill. In the tragic news department, my slide scanner has died an untimely death, so I'm hoping Santa will bring me a new one. Until then, there are still dozens of your 4000 slides to scan.

I'll talk to the elves to see about getting you a new scanner. Can't let those slides go to waste. Bill
