Wow, how unfortunate. Thank you for letting us know, RW. I was really encouraged to hear from him after a lengthy absence.

I hope all is well with you and your family.

It seems wrong t give an update now, so soon after Mr Hamilton has passed.

But it has been reported on multiple Facebook groups -- so that means it's true, SMH -- that Corman is sending a six axle unit to the Carolina Lines to help with the rock trains. It is a SD40T-2. I can't remember the number right off hand.

Rock trains keep coming in long and heavy on the RJC Carolina Lines. Folks are sharing a lot of photos and videos. A lot of them come in at night.

Presumably on Facebook, or some on YouTube, as well?

There's a Facebook group dedicated to the line that started out back in the Carolina Southern days. I forget the link right off hand
