New Units for Windsor & Hantsport

Two "new" engines have been acquired for the Windsor & Hantsport Railway in Nova Scotia. These are Conrail painted GE B23-7 units. The two former Conrail engines (now relettered WHRC 1968 and 4069 under the numbers) arrived in Halifax this morning on train CN 120. They had spent several days in Moncton.

Here they are at Bayview Junction in Ontario.

Here they are in Tennessee, I believe.

The discussion on their journey is here.

"Two GE B23-7's are destined for the Windsor & Hansport RR. WHRC #1968
and 4079 both arrived in Louisville,KY on CSX on March 6, 2010. Both were most recently owned by the Nashville & Eastern RR and as far as I know never
turned a wheel in service. Both are in Conrail blue, with #1968 in nearly pure CR paint and markings while #4079 had the original number patched while in operation on NS and later had CR markings painted out when acquired by National Railway Equipment."
