Perhaps Metro Jacksonville FORGOT to let anyone know until today:
Back in February 2008, on the 26th to be exact,
” … with the help of tipster Ocklawaha, Metro Jacksonville found a NYC subway car in Springfield, just north of Downtown Jacksonville.
“The subway car, #983, was built by the American Car & Foundry Co. in 1935. At just over 60 feet long and weighing in at 83,963 pounds, it represents a significant piece of New York City and transit history.”
LINK to the story and pictures of the NOW RUSTY car #936 can be found here.
Ocklawaha is indeed a finder of both lost railroads AND lost railcars!
UPDATE: LINK to the Prime F. Osborn Convention Center can be found here.
