Harold Cox Birney Book
Posted by daveklepper on Thursday, August 10, 2017 8:37 AM

Harold Cox (still alive, I hope) offered this find book as a free download about 18 years ago, and I took advangage of it.   Now I find it missing, and I believe I may a have a definite need for it.  I find the book for sale at various venders with blogs, but I do not find any downloading.  Anyone have it who is willing to share?  Any suggestions other than sending one of the second-hand vendors a check?

This site has a link to view  "The Birney Car" on-line.  Is it the book you are looking for.  Link is in the middle of the list of books.

I tried to sell my two cents worth, but no one would give me a plug nickel for it.

I don't have a leg to stand on.

Found an error:

Birneys operated on the Conner Street line through WWII.  Car 2350 ran under its own power from the James Street carhouse to the Branford Electric Railway museum trackage in the summer of 1947.
