WSOR 6641 Editors Pick! Contributor's Pick!       
What a treat the north bound WSOR local was. A trio of former CNW SD18s. These units stated life as Southern Railway high hood SD24s and when retired by Southern, Where sold to Presion National who used them in short term lease service. After that the units were sold to CNW who rebuilt them to SD18 specs by removing the turbo charger and dynamic brakes. During this time, The units had retained their high short hoods. When retired by UP, The units were picked up by WSOR who chopped the short hoods. At the time this photo was taken, Only one out of the four the WSOR had picked up had been repainted.
