The only B&M 6-6-4 I can find in B&M paint is "Salisbury Beach" from the same series.  Both Dartmouth College I and II ended up on CN and later VIA.  I did go see "Dunkirk" in Spaulding Auditorium a couple of weeks ago, and have seen many concerts, performances and movies there over the last 40 years.  I live and work nearby.

Fourteen used sleeping cars arrived on the CN in February 1965 from two different U.S. roads. From The Bangor and Aroostook came the only two lightweight streamlined sleeping cars ever purchased by that road a pair of 6 Section 6 Roomette 4 Double Bedroom Sleeping cars delivered by Pullman Standard in November - December 1954. These cars were built to Plan: 4194 in Lot: 6942. The two Bangor and Aroostook cars were part of a six car order with the other four being delivered to the Boston & Maine and used in pool service with the BAR cars. The four ex B & M cars would join the BAR cars in CN service beginning in February 1966 one year later.

RC, you might wish to do Dartmouth a great favor.  There is absolutely no reason for the high-level amplification loudspeakers to be so unsightly!  Good coverage from massive loudspeakers with modern equipment can be arranged by 1. rehabilitating the original speech reinforcment system with the latest and best high-frequency drivers and cone "woofer;" and 2. one set of computer-steered-covreage-array large column loudspeakers  against both the left and right stage walls at the front of the stage.

When I did the acoustics work, I was an employee of Bolt Beranek and Newman.  The successor firm, still in Cambridge, MA., is Acentech, and Larry Philbrick or Tom Horrall there are excellent sound system designers who could do an excellent job in meeting the demands of their audio-visual people and still restore the orginal cleaner appearance.  Other firms include the successor to my firm, Marshall/KMK in Chappaqua, NY, and Dan Clayton and Associates, also in Chappaqua.

I assume you have enjoyed plays in the two theatres, and occasional motion pictures.

Under Spaulding Auditorium are a reshearsal room/recording studio with control room.  The sound-isolation construction between the two was a pioneering design that has been used many times and is still in use.  Spaulding was one of the first two halls of BBN that attempted to combine claritiy with reverberation.

If you know peole at Dartmouth, you might mention the idea.  And my cousin David Louis, approximately my age and a classmate at Columbia Grammer Prep., was at Dartmouth when I was an MIT undergraduate.

Please post Salisbury Beach.  I can alter the name and repost it as Dartmouth College I.
