M-5 in Florence, S.C.greenspun.com : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread
There is an M-5 on display in Florence, S.C. It is located between R.A. Tower (out of service and structurally condemned by C.S.X.) and Irby Street on the right of way of what remains of the west end of the W.M. & A. The caboose and a C.S.X. boxcar are the major part of the Pee Dee Chapter's, N.R.H.S display. The cab is painted red and lettered Atlantic Coast Line, numbered 0761. The boxcar is C.S.X.T. 158507. Weren't the M-5's orange when they rolled out of the shops at Waycross?

Yes,the M-5's were painted orange.The number indicates that it is indeed a M-5.Who knows maybe they wanted a M-3 instead!
