It's a great thought Ross, but time is running out. When I was collection narrow gauge cars in Colorado in the 70's and 80's, I can't tell you the number of cars I "lost". I'm sure there are other cars out there, but who has the time or money to track them down. I'm sure if the youth camp understood those cars were worth $1000.00 a piece, they would now pee their pants! To most people they are just old building that need to go away. If you look on the youth camp website,..... they burned some really cool old log buildings too. The RR cars were no different. Transporting cost today are out of site. I agree with what you are saying.....and it makes me sick to see those two cars burned, but if we want to save existing cars.....it needs to be done now. I read too many stories of owners contacting railroads or museums asking if they want the old "caboose" on their property and they receive a reply of no, or no reply at all. As a result, the cars are torn down. I grew up on the D&RGW standard gauge and am not really too excited about standard gauge stuff, but an really nice Santa Fe wooden refer was recently burned here in norther Arizona. Why......because it was an old building that was in the way. The owners contacted a museum in CA and in AZ, but nobody showed an interest. Life goes on
