Coalporters!

The CH&FR has just taken possession of a set of five Bethgon Coalporters on consignment (assignment?) from CSX. These big, lightweight modern coal haulers will be put to work improving the efficiency of bringing the black gold from the LaVere mine to market by way of CSX’s Russell, KY yard.

These new Athearn models were a surprise gift from a friend on nScale.net, a wholly undeserved thank-you for some help I rendered with a minor computer issue. The CH&FR Management and I are very grateful for such kindness from our friends.
