SGP, did you need permission to go down there? I wanted to but was not sure if I could
                                                     
No you don't really need permission to go down there. My advice is though is not to be afraid to walk in the tall weeds when the train comes.  I did ask someone if it was all right the first time I walked up on the vestibule of one of the coaches. But there ar no rules against it or anything.

The trust has thought about putting tar on the roof, but we thought that the best idea was to get custom tarps made so that no further damage could be done in the winter.

 
 
The beginning of Winter is weeks away....is there really enough time to have expensive "custom made" tarps made and get them on the cars in time?
 
Snow is not the only enemy here. I would suggest getting something in the interim to protect the cars until those CM tarps arrive.
 
Also, are the cars left open to the world like that?  I know Ringos is not in a metropois but still, some roaming vegrant could easily do some serious damamge to those interiors.

Sadly yes, the cars are open year round. good idea about the inside. I'll discuss that with members of the trust.

Unfortunately the bodies need some metalwork and the trucks I believe need rebuilding.  The Boonton cars have trucks unlike most other equipment, particularly with how they mate with the coach body, and so swapping/replacing trucks is not an option with these cars.  I agree some sort of weatherproofing and securing is needed in the near future, until ridership demands more coaches and funds are raised to do the necessary work to put them in service.  Also, I do not know who owns them (trust or the railroad) as that could unfortunately change the priority as well.
