A new mother-slug combination arrives at South Carolina's Lancaster & Chester Railroad recently.
David B. Clarke
New power recently arrived on the Lancaster & Chester in Chester, S.C., with fresh blue paint. The mother-slug combination is the first six-axle power the railroad has ever received, with the mother being the SD40T-2 (ex-Union Pacific No. 8802, ex-Southern Pacific No. 8257) and the slug being the C40-8 (ex-UP No. 9146). The paint job and other work was done at the Knoxville Locomotive Works in Knoxville, Tenn. Observers say a second set may follow in the near future.
