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. :)

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)
