note - The vast bulk of my massive Web presence (over 485 pages) had been hosted by AT&T's WorldNet service since 30 May 1996; they dropped WorldNet service effective 31 Mar 2010 and I have been scrambling to transfer everything.  Everything's saved but all the links have to be changed, mostly by hand.  See my sbiii.com Transfer Page for any updates on this tedious process.

INDEX to Boxcabs Pages:

note-rt.gif  The primary Boxcabs Index has been moved to a separate page, together with links and credits.

Boxcab Help - A service for boxcab afficionados,
posting reasonable questions (at my sole discretion).

There are now more than seventy-five (75) BOXCAB pages;
see the full INDEX, now on a separate page.

[A new "bugaboo" has reared its ugly head - complexity of organization -
see COMPLEXITY on my main index page.]

and the

ROSTER OF SURVIVING ALCo-GE-IR BOXCABS.

See also the Electric Boxcabs page, et seq.

There are now separate pages for each AGEIR or similar surviving boxcab; the redundant material is being removed (very slowly).

note-rt.gif - This page is not finished; I wanted to put up the images and map; some more descriptions and links are to follow but I have a long way to go in all this!

T1/T2/T3 (on Survivors Map) - three big Butte, Anaconda & Pacific electric box motors were reputedly at Butte, Harlowton, and Deer Lodge, Montana.  Of these three, I can show you only the first, 1914 GE #47, on display at the Anselmo mine yard [although the property of the World Museum of Mining (located by Montana Tech)] in Butte, along with Tractor Truck ("slug") No. T-2 of the same vintage.

Oops!  The above had said "are" instead of "were" since I created the boxcab pages but I've long since known the other two are NOT BA&P and the one at Deer Lodge isn't even a real boxcab but a streamliner!  I finally got out there on 13-14 Aug 2004 and saw them for myself; much more on all this, with pictures, will follow eventually.

Notice that the axles are numbered along the sides of the loco and tractor truck and that the T-2 "tractor truck' is just that, a tractor motor (slug) made from just one weighted truck (on a jumper cable).

Martin Fouts ("Old Fogey") has quite a bit about the BA&P, click HERE to go there.
