Royal Hudson 2839

Southern Railway leased former Canadian Pacific "Royal Hudson" 2839 from a group called Atlantic Central from Pennsylvania. After the Hudson's tenure on Southern, she was returned to the AC group who then operated the large gal over the Octorara Railroad's Wilmington & Northern branch in Delaware and southeastern Pennsylvania.


This was a private one time only trip roughly Wilsmere, DE to Coatesville, PA and return. The consist consisted of three Wilmington & Western coaches and a former US Army 65 ton center cab diesel no. 9. The center cab is now at Cass Scenic Railroad and the Hudson, is in Sylmar, CA.
