Operation Lifesaver #8752greenspun.com : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread
I saw CSX train Q646 come through Waxhaw,NC from Hamlet,NCon 4/25/2002 with Operation Lifesaver #8752 as a trailing unit behind 2 SD70Mac. This engine had no ownership markings but was old geep, dark black with large white nunbers on the long hood, I would say GP9 or 10, just quessing. I know several people have sites with shots from around Hamlet, NC, anyone have quess who this unit belongs too.

The engine question is a former IC GP11 that was eventually sold to the Gulf & Ohio Railways.I ran this engine in Albany,Ga when I worked for the G&O.
