Introducing ACWR 103
Author: scraphauler

The Aberdeen Carolina & Western is publicly unveiling their new E9, ACWR 103, by running a special from Candor NC to Stanfield NC today.  The special move has been publicized and appears to have drawn a fair number of chasers out today, including from some traditional railfan publications, so I'm sure there will be quite a bit of coverage on line over next few days.  So without further ado, ACWR 103, 276, and 271 back out of shop complex with 7 of their fleet with SD40-2 6918 playing the role of caboose, Candor NC, 0930, 5/25/23
