Waxhaw NC 7/4/2019
Author: dstill

Q583 eastbound yesterday @ 1715 had what looked like one repainted or rebuilt unit and two very old NAUG units. The power was
CSX 3397
CSX 1704
RSSX 2589  
NAUG 859
NAUG 686

CSX 3169 midtrain dpu

Interesting consist.  RSSX translate (per AAR list of reporting marks) as Railserve.  NAUG supposedly is Naugatuck RR in Connecticut.  Strange to be found in NC.  Anybody have any additional input?

The two Geeps started out as NKP units later to become N&W.

The two Geeps have never been on the NAUG before that I know of; I wonder if they're intended to switch the C&D transload operation there?

I just noticed something on the NAUG 859 that I hadn't noticed.  Below the NAUG tag looks like GOMX?  That's not on the 686.  Just found both of these units on the GOMX page of Railpicturesarchieves.

As  far as I know NKP Geeps never had dynamic brakes, did N&W add them?

I think those might be original N&W numbers, they're not NKP.

When I noticed GOMX on one of the units I checked GOMX on railpicturesarchieve and they showed B&H in SC.

Correct...both are former N&W same numbers...never were NKP.
