Remarks & Notes 
Greenville & Western crew gets another run with the Aiken Railway GP30 #4201 before she is sent to home rails for the first time in late 2013. This is also a somewhat rare move as the crew normally works the other side of the yard. But on this day, they had to work a spur at the end of the line. This allowed me to get a good sunny side shot of the GP30 on lead at this end of the line.

The GP30 is a former BNSF and ATSF unit. It's wearing a paint scheme styled after the old Great Northern, but using different colors.

The Greenville & Western Railway owns and operates just under 13 miles of former CSX track in Anderson, SC. It is former Piedmont & Northern track (later Seaboard Coast Line) that was up for abandonment in 2006 when it was bought by the Western Carolina Railway. The Greenville & Western connects the small villages of Belton, Cheddar, Williamston and Pelzer and also gives the Pickens Railroad a second connection to a Class 1 carrier, CSX, in Pelzer.
