A railroad crew member appears to be tying down his train in Hamlet, North Carolina with Helms Leasing 6500 on lead. I suspect this train was heading to the Aberdeen, Carolina and Western Railway.... (more)
Wearing the "Vengeful" paint scheme, this unit is typical of what happened to former L&N under the new management. I guess they forgot all that money this railway produced while they we... (more)
On the connection between the east-west and the north-south former Seaboard lines, this unit appears to be stationary. No idea how this happened or why. Photo by Jim Satterwhite. From my colle... (more)
Modified for hump service at Rice Yard in Waycross these "H-15s" as the railroad called them were in at least one case re-engined with old 16-567BC engines. After SBD came along they sh... (more)
Formerly of the L&N this unit is now actually CSX but does not bear that logo so I prefer Seaboard. It appears to be sitting in the "field" where units await assignment after being serv... (more)
It was unusual, I think, to find a large number of coal hoppers on this train but today the faded Uceta rebuilds have quite a string on this departing WB train. Photo by Jim Satterwhite, from my ... (more)
Faded glory. Having once been resplendent in SAL green, then drab in SCL and in two days to be owned by the "railroad with no name", this unit awaits its next assignment in the humid so... (more)
I miss these old models and remember how it seems as if they would be around forever.
The "field" is more full of units today and this unit may be set up to go out on a road freight.
Sitting in what was called "the field" ready for assignment is one of the best looking locomotives repainted into this scheme, a former Clinchfield unit. For an earlier photo see 44793... (more)
Trains arriving at Hamlet predominately use the old SAL main to go north to access the inbound tracks. Here an odd collection of stuff is bringing in an EB train.
Originally an L&N unit it already has its CSX number. At the wash rack.
Inbound freight with a leader from one of my favorite roads which has yet to be butchered up after the merger in December.
This former SCL unit was lucky enough to get one of my favorite modern paint jobs before CSX came along.
Take a good look, you may never see one again. This is a locomotive washing facility. Pride and image are two things of small concern to the followship of most present day railroads.
