Farewell to the Winchester & Western
 
This long-time fan favorite in Virginia is the latest to fall under a holding company. I'm sure it won't take long for the older GP9/10s to disappear, and likely replaced with leasers and/or other surplus power from other OmniTrax lines.

It was a good run...

I've heard they were up for sale a while back. The leaser infiltration already began in earnest with them test driving / returning / and finally settling on some junk from GATX.

I never have been lucky enough to catch them rolling while in their areas and it seems those days are numbered for sure now. Sad news to see another Shortline dissapear........

Indeed, Loyd. When I heard Unimin had been bought out, the first thing to cross my mind was "Well, there goes the railroad."
