Kris Town of Bath Boxcars

Berkeley Springs, West Virginia was originally established as the Town of Bath in 1776. The Berkeley Springs and Potomac Railroad operated in West Virginia from 1880 to 1910. There is only one Town of Bath variation in the Kris Model Trains chapter of Greenberg's Guide to Kusan Trains. There's also only one variation, with a limited description, for the Berkeley Springs and Potomac Railroad: "-- Green; NBT." The Town of Bath cars on this page were produced by Kris Model Trains for Newbraugh Brothers Toys (NBT) and all four are NBT number 500-1001. Production dates and numbers are from the Newbraugh Brothers Toys Checklist 1974 - 1982.
