The short answer with vague details is:
It's owned by a guy who works for Guilford ( same guy owns some former
B&M passenger cars that he leases out, notably to the green Mountain
in the fall and to the late lamented NS Steam Excursions). It was leased
to the D-L, hence the paint job. Currently leased to a contractor on the Old
colony rebuilding, hence it's being in Brockton. I believe he bought the unit
from the D&H trustee, although he coulda bought it from Guilford I guess.
There was a bit about this in misc.transport.whatever a couple of months
