Lancaster & Chester RR #52 Jeremy Wright

In December, 2018, L&C Road Slug #52 sits at Chester, South Carolina waiting to be permanetly mated to LC MP15DC #2369. It is the second L&C unit to wear this number, the first being a Whitcomb center cab in the 1940s, part of the first fleet of diesel motors on the railroad.


L&C #52 was built in 1969 as Houston Belt & Terminal SW1500 #52. It was then sold to the Gulf & Ohio's Atlantic and Gulf Railroad as AGFL 52, then to Conecuh Valley Railroad (COEH 52). It must have sat around a long time as the last photograph I can find of it (so far) is from 2006 until Jeremy Wright shot this one last December.


You'll note the L&C Springmaid logo on the cab. It is oval and multi-colored like those worn by the L&C end cabs in the 80s and 90s and like SW900 #91 at Circle S still wears.
