Lancaster and Chester 10-19-21
Author: regmacSC

On 10-19-21, I went up to catch the Lancaster and Chester RR as this may be one of the last times I see them for a while as I'm about to move to the Atlanta area,  On that day, I caught trains 12,14, and 16.  Since being bought by the Gulf and Ohio, the L&C units are arriving or being painted black, but there are a few left in the Springmaid Blue.  

First shot is of Train 12 being led by SD40-2 7092 leading a former CSX SD60M.
2nd shot is of Train 16 with a pair of former NS (Southern) units.  A MP15DC leading a high hood GP38AC
3rd shot is of the first set of 6 axle units on the RR.  SD40T-2 6002 and C40-8S 9146

#5 is Train 14 coming out of the tree tunnel approaching Pleasant Hill, SC.
#6 They're approaching the end of their journey as they pass the depot in Heath Springs, SC

Seeing that the Tunnel Motor is back in service, I may have to make one last trip up there (before I move too)!
