Was told recently by a friend that the Camden & Southern has a 'new' old EMD SW1.

Curious if they own it or if its just a lease? Has anyone seen any pictures?

This operation is owned by the same folks who own the Dardanelle and Russellville Railroad. The SW1's are former D&R engines.

New Member I understand it, this one came from outside the D&R family. Possibly from a dealer in Illinois.
