ACL E8A #547 : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

I have heard that ACL E8A #547 was wrecked prior to SCL, and therefore doesen't appear on the Amtrak roster. So, I was wondering when/where the unit was wrecked, and what became of it.

Thanks for any info,

Phil Bell

There was a washout and the unit went into the mud. There was no ICC report for this accident.

According to Calloway's ACL book the 547 was wrecked at Willacoohie,Ga. on 12-4-64 and was scrapped in Jan 1965.
