Default SD40-3s coming to the Aberdeen Carolina & Western

Two ex CN/WC SD40-3s have been spotted in Chicago lettered for the ACWR in North Carolina. I have been able to find that there will be a total of four at present, and possibly two more to come. These are the ex Alstom leasing units in gray paint with orange trim that had a white CN "noodle" added to the long hood and WC sublettering.

It is definitely a buyer's market for older power right now, and good to see some lines taking advantage. Those SD40-3s should dig in really nice pulling grain up the hill from Aberdeen.
