Carolina & Northwestern Railway
                             Rolling Stock

Side door cabooses ruled the railroad from 1902 until the early 1950's, when SR-style baywindows arrived.

    From the beginning of standard gauge days in 1902, passenger equipment largely consisted of Southern Railway hand-me-downs. Here, a Jim Crow combine sits at an unidentified location in South Carolina during the winter of 1941. Passenger service ended in 1947, with George Ruff as the engineer on the final leg from Hickory to Chester.

After the Great Depression, the only company freight cars other than the cabooses were for MOW duty.

   Most MOW equipment was also Southern hand-me-downs. The only exception were five new ballast hoppers that arrived in the 1950's.
