Went to the grand opening of the Brockway Museum today, got pics of the trucks inside and some that showed up for the ceremony that were parked outside.

thought i would put this picture here since the museum is up and running. ok heres the back story. this bldg is in albany new york. i delivered to a customer next door to it. im thinking they own both buildings. this bldg is on broadway avenue in albany ny.the main bldg to the customer sits on the corner of a street and this bldg is right next door so im thinking its all 1 property and at 1 time this brockway dealership owned a nice piece of land. maybe this would be the sales office with the shop out back. next time im there ill ask around about the history of this place.

where would truckin be without largecars,the monfort lane,and old trucks

Acording to my brother the Museum is on the site of the former AB Brown farm implement dealership--at one time there was an overpass where U S 11 crossed the DL & W RR tracks but that has been removed and the the rail line is operated by the NYS & W and I believe the tracks are owned by the State of NY who bought them when Conrail did not take them into their system.  I plan to visit the museum  on  the weekend of 8-10-11-12--My  brother and I spent our high school years on a farm that our father had in the town of Virgil about 10 miles south on NY rte 392.  My brother  lives in Freeville which is about 10 miles from Cortland off of NY 13 in Tompkins County.  The Virgil Central School District which no longer exists had 3 Brockway buses-one Dodge and an IH panel van  that had been converted into a small bus to service a route that only had a few kids on it. The NY Jets are coming to training camp in Cortland this week so Motels are scarce and expensive but I booked at a Best Western a few miles north on I 81 where a I stayed a couple of years ago.  There is a rest area in Preble close by and plan to get some pics there as well as the one just north of Whitney Point.

Excellent series of shots and some of the businesses that owned the trucks are familiar names altho they no longer exist. Some of the people I went to school with worked at the Brockway plant until they closed down and shut the doors. The plant itself was really not very big and you almost had to know it was there-- It was close by the railroad station as was most every other business as Cortland wasn't all that big a town(actually it is called a City).

The ATHS show has been moved to the Broom County Fairgrounds at Whitney Poiunt and will be held in conjuntion with a tractor club show on 8-26-12 as I have previously posted.

That building is now owned by Skyline Roofing, but was originally the Albany Brockway dealership.

You  have done such a good job I won't be taking many pictures when I visit there--nice  sharp photos good color and different photo angles--it don't get any better than that.  Thnx for sharing :)
