Three more around the AC&W
Author: srman

Here's three more that some of you might find interesting around the AC&W. A line of stored CN units. A light power move with a UP painted switcher and finally if you look real hard you'll see a NS F unit that they bought sitting out side their shops in Candor N.C.

They got at least 1 Ohio Central F unit in the shop too. Last time I was there they were rebuilding it on the side when they had time to work on it. Engine was in poor shape then.

Speculation was that ACWR bought the ex-CN units in anticipation of taking over some CSX lines in North Carolina. Didn't happen, or at least it hasn't happened yet.

Interesting photos,  Their shop building is impressive.  As I said before, things have changed.

srman - thanks for the coverage.  Did you notice if the two outside braced boxcars with the display Geep at the opposite end of the shops have been painted/lettered?

In reference to those two cars attached to the display geep. No they are still unpainted with no indentifing markings.

The two box’s are Wabash heritage I think. They and the PRR bag are survivors they picked out of the great dumpster fire that was the Indiana Transportation Museum.

Do they still have that old ex-CNW F B-unit kicking around?  400600 or something like that.

I didn't see any CNW F units however I don't know what was inside their shop.

It's the old CNW power car ACWR bought from the NCDOT.  The last time I saw it was in Star in February 2017.

Here's two pics from 2004 when the NCDOT owned the power car.
