First up, an immigrant - Aberdeen Carolina & Western's ACWR 5536, an EMD SD60F originally built as Canadian National CN 5536 in July of 1989.
Another SD60F with similar history - built as CN 5531 in June of 1989, now ACWR 5531.
I'm not sure if the ACWR are actually going to put these in service or what, but they would look fantastic in their livery. Cowl units are cool, regardless.
Note the "Draper Taper" design here - how the body tapers behind the cab, allowing for the rear facing window in the cab. Not something most cab/cowl units have.
My oldest catch yet - a Baldwin 2-8-0 built in January of 1897. Built as Norfolk & Western NW 353, renumbered to 201, then finally to NW 7. Donated to the City of Bluefield, WV, where it resides today.
I don't typically photograph buildings, but this old building caught my eye in Huntington, WV - D.K. Cabin, which unfortunately CSX has scheduled for demolition (note sign). Originally built by the Chesapeake & Ohio. Best shot I could get, we just stumbled across it and snapped a quick shot.
And a video.
We were passing through Winston-Salem, NC and I said, "let's stop by the NS yard and see what's happening real quick". So we did, and this consist just happened to show up right after we got there.
The leader is NS 6330, an EMD SD40E. Originally built as an SD50 for Conrail in May of 1984 as CR 6748, it went to Norfolk Southern as their NS 5426 before being rebuilt into the current form.
Trailing is NS 5668, an EMD GP38-2. Built in June of 1971 as a GP38AC for Norfolk & Western as NW 4135, it then went to NS as NS 4135 before being rebuilt into the current form.
