We are pleased to announce the arrival of our newest member of the VRR passenger car fleet. Last Friday, the long-awaited arrival of our new First-Class car Goodspeed came to fruition. Formerly located in Florida, the car took a circuitous journey to finally be delivered to the Old Saybrook wye by the P&W Railroad. Valley crews brought her home to Track 11 where she now awaits renovations for future First-Class service, adding capacity for our popular North Pole Express.
Kevin Dodd adds: We owe a debt of gratitude and appreciation to Dave Conrad for his time, during his vacation, to make repair, inspect, and prepare the Goodspeed for its journey north. Dave’s efforts to find good and exceptional investment opportunities like this have been a huge factor in the success of the Essex Steam Train.
