The 5 F units are in Richmond, Va. @ Acca Yd. on CSXT. Look for them to go south probably tonight to Rocky Mount then onto Hamlet.

Two As and a B unit are heading to the Aberdeen, Carolina, & Western Railroad in Starr, NC. Not sure where the others are heading.

Here's some photos (I did not take them)

Sometimes I dream of things like that, like being trackside and seeing some unidentified covered wagons or steam locomotives going by in a freight. But for you it was real. LOL

What is the ACWR going to do with those units?

All of them are going to the AC&W. Two of them are on loan.

In the summer of 2005, I was able to take some pictures of unit 82C rusting away on the OC. It looks like the OC did some sand blasting on her to remove years of rust and dirt. Hopefully, they will breath life back into 82C.

Here are some links to pictures I have to OC units listed in this post.

Here is my blog post that contains more information and other links pertaining to 82C.

Enjoy the information!

I thought I had missed them but, they came in last night to Richmond. I found them in Acca Yard this morning. Heard they will probably go out tonight, possibly on Q451 ?????

Anyone know the parts, or the full story?

What is the AC&W?
Where did each of the 5 units come from?
Why did the OC buy them only to turn around and sell them so quickly?

- and slightly off topic - how many F's did the OC get and how many
are left?
