That concludes my bit of old-time railfan fiction.  Haying and volunteering at Seashore Trolley Museum (near Kennebunkport, ME) have me pretty busy, but I should be able to get  F&SM 838075 to the proper interchange in the next day or two.

John,
      Haven't heard anything on the F&SM hopper car in a while.  Hope it wasn't lost in a derailment somewhere.  Where's it at these days and is it traveling to other great layouts and dioramas' some more?  Thanx Thom...

The F&SM hopper is currently in a yard hold, awaiting orders, in the Eagles Nest Yard on the Superior & Seattle RR. I plan to take it to the NG Convention next week where it will end up traveling on the layout tours.
