Trolley Museum of New York runs a Brill Model 55. Like the one at Colebrookdale, this one is ex Sperry, ex Remington, ex Valley RR.

On that note, are there some relatively intact Brill motorcars not discussed in this thread?

Gee, we've really gotten far away from Edwards Railcars. The Brill model 40 and 50 are relatively small like the Edwards cars.

But, the Brill built Santa Fe M160 is a full-size, gas-electric railroad car capable of pulling standard railroad cars. The Santa Fe re-engined it with a War Surplus EMD 567 diesel.

Seems it has escaped mention in this thread, but does anyone know the status of the NYC M-405 at the Delaware & Ulster?

From Google street view of the DU site, you can see what appears to be the M-405 under an aging tarp. Doesn't have the look of being touched any time recently.
