Not a Heritage Unit...
Author: dharris

I'm up in Harrisburg for a few days in hopes of catching any of the NS heritage units. Saw two railfans who told me at least two of them came through the area today, both of which I missed. With my luck, this was what wandered in front of the camera instead. Came in on 34A- anybody know origin/destination for it?

I was wondering where that engine went....that's (CPDR) Carolina Piedmont Railroad, based in Laurens, SC. Where it's going now I'm not totally sure.

Well, its an RA unit.. Possibly going to NECR's St Alban's shop for parts donation to keep other units running.. Thats my guess..

That's a mighty fine looking locomotive.

Interesting fan arrangement. Looks like the long hood was cut off and then just tacked back into place.

There wasn't anything under the long hood, by the way.

Looks like it now has a low nose, but that bell on long hood makes be believe it was originally Southern.

Thanks Chris. I did not notice the bell but did notice the telling walkway lights on the long hood.
