A NEW LIFE FOR OLD GP38-2s – A Buckingham Branch Railroad ballast train crosses CSX’s RF&P Sub and passes long-abandoned HN Tower in Doswell, VA on May 20, 2018. Powering the five-car train are Buckingham Branch GP38-2s Nos. 14 and 17, formerly Southern Railway/Norfolk Southern Nos. 5026 and 5143, built by EMD in the early seventies. These GP38-2s were among the 50+ GP38-2s and other engines sold at auction by Norfolk Southern in 2016 by Blackmon Auctions. This train is east bound on Buckingham Branch’s Richmond & Alleghany Division, and was previously Chesapeake & Ohio’s Piedmont Sub. HN Tower opened in 1929 and was closed in 1958.
