I don't know about the baggage car, but the locomotive's still around!

Click on the photograph for a closer look, it's in nice shape!  

The baggage car might be right behind the locomotive, but it's hard to tell.

Looks like it has the same pattern in the band accross the top, plus the wiki says the loco was donated in 1970 so I'd guess they came as a set.

Trains, trains, wonderful trains.  The more you get, the more you toot!  Big Smile

Two points of interest: Note the era correct headlight compared to the one in the 1960's photos. In the 60's photo that headlight didn't fill the platform, the correct one does. And, catch the bell yoke extending to the handrails. Way cool! Thanks for sharing.

I wonder what it would take to get #35 running again?   Hmm
