Aberdeen Carolina & Western?
Author: RRBMail

I may be in Charlotte, NC, this Fall. I'd like to shoot some action/roster of the AC&W purple rolling stock and diesels. Are they railfan friendly? Do they ever run public excursions? Is their Aberdeen terminal near the Aberdeen & Rockfish RR? Thanks in advance!

The AC&W is a very first class outfit. Suggest you go to their website ( www.acwr.com) and send them a message with your request to visit their shop in Candor, NC and whatever else you'd like to do.

The engine facility for the Aberdeen & Rockfish is fenced, but you might get lucky and find them switching a car from the CSX interchange. You might find power at Raeford, and definitely working around Fayetteville (M-F). 

You should also contact TO member scraphauler, as he lives on the AC&W and can probably give you the best insight for operations (they are dependent on grain trains to/from CSX at Aberdeen).

ACW also goes to Charlotte a few times a week to interchange with Norfolk Southern.

They are usually working somewhere between Star, Oakboro, Aberdeen, and Charlotte every week day.
