Carolina Southern is announcing a merger with the North Carolina Railroad. This will benefit us, because we can get more money and rolling stock, and more track mileage to get recognition as a Proper Regional Railroad. We are waiting for the Surface Transportation Board and North Carolina Railroad to approve the merger. :)

We got a message from CSX, they have dropped off your GP7. Our Mt.Clare shops are open if you need anything else.

The "Geep in the Woods of Terror" is a whole new beauty now. She has received new parts, and a complete remodel. Here she was before restoration:

And here she is after restoration:

We also had the painter put the M&N name on the frame. Thanks for the support!

A HUGE thanks to everyone who helped make this Geep's future a bright one. 8)

Why would EMD be using GE parts?

We'll take you up for your lease offer, CSX has rotated their stuff out, and NS is letting us use their power for another 2 weeks. What do you have that we can lease for atleast a month, until we can get more of our diesels up and running.

We can lease the SD41-2, the SDP34, the SD60, and the GP59. For all 4, we will charge about $324,000 a month for all 4.
