Equipment Rosters
        The most often asked question regarding our former museum is: "What happened to all the equipment from the
museum?"  Our collection contained the largest group of work equipment from a single system (TMER&L) and the second
largest group of CNS&M cars.  We also had a wide variety of equipment from various systems. These included interurbans,
streetcars and locos as well as regular railroad equipment, plus an assortment of buses and trucks.
        Although most of the non-electric equipment has been saved, many pieces have gone through several hands, and we are
not sure of their present ownership.
        The following rosters contain the electric equipment, and the disposition and status as reported to us when this list was
made (2005).  For additional updates, contact the appropriate museum.
The first roster lists equipment from TMER&L
The second roster lists the equipment from the other systems.
