Preserved Boston and Maine Passenger Equipment

The part of this compilation listing preserved wood cars is the work of a Chicago railfan, and was provided to me by Ted Anderson . My focus here is equipment that is still more or less as it was when in B&M service - I am giving a lower priority to heavily modified equipment like the Boise Budds in service for Virginia Rail Express. Much of the information came from sources in the literature and the world wide web - I intend to expand and revise it as more complete information becomes available. Corrections and criticisms to jbvbRemove_This.@ttlc.net .

If you want have more general information on the Boston & Maine RR, here's a link to my top-level index.
