Default Patriot Rail - Piedmont & Northern getting a locomotive

Just received a report that the power for this line getting ready to start up in North Carolina is ready at LTE in MacDonald, OH. GP15-1 1451 (ex NS, same number, for CR) is in full Patriot Rail colors with Piedmont & Northern lettering. Should ship soon and probably be in North Carolina around the first part of May.

Hopefully, traffic will amount to something and this reopened line can become viable under Patriot Rail's operation. I know of little other than car storage that has taken place so far.
