Just thought I would add a note here. I recently drove by the spot where this coal car was sitting and it is no longer there. I have no idea what became of it but I am glad that I took pictures of it before it was removed. I am hoping that it was taken somewhere to be restored.

Thanks,
Randy

Glad that my photos were some inspiration to you Ian. I always like to carry my camera with me when I am out and about as a person never knows what they will come across.

Thanks,
Randy

This gives me some great ideas to do with some old wagons than were never good runners

Thank you for posting the photos Fred. I am glad you could use them for the site. The cart is in pretty rough shape as you can tell. It was filled with dirt and used as a planter for flowers which obviously helped lead to the poor condition it is in. It sits at our local fair grounds. I had forgotten that it was sitting there until I drove by it one day. I think that I am going to contact our local museum (where the trolley car sits that I sent you the pictures of) and see if they can have it moved and taken better care of. Thank you also for the history lesson.
