Back at the beginning of the summer, I got a call from one of my train buddies asking if I wanted to help save an N6b. I presumed he meant the chassis we had worked on at Pemberton but that wasn't it. Seems that there was an older gentleman who acquired another N6b from CR back in the '70s. He had it moved to his back yard in Hainesport, NJ, not far from where the Pemberton car was also located. He wanted to use it for his HO trains, which apparently he did as far as storing them in there. By the time we got to it, it was in very sad shape. The roof was gone as was the walls on the street end of the car. We took it apart and had the chassis moved to a location where we could finish taking it apart and begin the restoration process. Well, as the summer progressed, so did we. The chassis is in paint awaiting the arrival of the sills beams so we can start putting it back together.
