Image The unholy trinity of Kinsley Goodrich, trolley car repair master guru, Tony Jewell, seriously deranged museum founder, Dave Bartlett, SFTM rail fan and raconteur of risque parables, inspect No. 10 for possibilities of restoration. Photo by Alfred Barten, on March 1991

Image Alienation Nation. SFTM owned former Boston and Maine boxcar used for storage of car restoration materials and track tools. Located in Buckland/Shelburne Falls rail yard. "Alienation Nation" was a joint effort of SFTM and The Art Bank to utilize local youth in a box car art project. As you can see our local youths have many fine ideas about life in outer space and believe that No. 10 has a place in the galaxy as well. The other side has yellow background and depicts dinosaurs times. Picture taken in October 1995 by Tony Jewell. In 2013 the box car was repainted by Caleb Nelon to a multi-colored dot scheme. We hope to have the funds to prepare it and paint it for its proper B&M colors some day.

Image Buckland/Shelburne Falls rail yard from the SFTM eagle eye. Shot in June of 1996. The large building on the upper left is the nearly 150 year old Boston and Maine Shelburne Falls freight house. "Alienation Nation" boxcar is on the bottom to the left of the freight house. The rail yard, which bought from Norm Sessions in 2004, is the home for our museum. Our restoration barn for No. 10 was constructed on the side of the building on the upper right. Construction started 9/9/96.
