Winchester and Western
Author: Appalachianrails

6/2/2016

The Winchester and Western is a unique shortline in Virginia with an engine roster comprised for former Conrail GP10s and leased GMTX GP38-2s. On a bright and warm summer morning, their "Sandman Turn" is seen making its way from Gore, VA to Winchester, VA with loaded sand hoppers bound for interchange with CSX. The two GP10s and GP38-2 show their reliability as they climb the grade towards Winchester.

Video 1: We see the Sandman between Back Creek, VA and Magic Mountain Road Crossing

Video 2: We see the Sandman at Round Hill, VA and arrving at Winchester.

Enjoy and thanks for looking.

Nice video of train grinding into town. A great illustration of the basics motive power versus a upgrade .

Yes, at the last part he is about 2-3 blocks south of B&O station
2 blocks north of that is Winchester Model RR Club in the old freight station

Very nice videos but boy does that railroad need some track work.  All those railjoints need to be tamped up and without seeing the condition of the ties, I would not be surprised if many of them need to be replaced.  It's sad to see some rail lines being operated in this fashion.  Yes I know, it takes money to maintain a railroad but as they say, it takes money to make money.
