Ever heard of them? Might not have, the company was formed in 1830 and would undergo a large merger with several other minor companies in 1900. The company and it's lines lasted all the way up until 1967, when it again merged with another company. This time it would be it's longtime rival, the Seaboard Air Line Railway, or SAL for short. They formed what became known as the Seaboard Coast Line Railroad, or SCL. Oh and here is the most interesting part, in 1986 the SCL and Northern-based chessie system merged to make none other but CSX! The truth is that these older railroads have been somewhat forgotten by history. I say we need to preserve them with some proper routes, engines, and rolling stock painted in ACL, SAL, and SCL liveries. I bring this whole subject up in the first place because of a certain engine in Wilmington, NC. A city which I live close to. This engine has fascinated me since I was a boy, and in truth the museum it resides at is rather vague about it's overall service history. Either way. anything that could be made for the ACL, SAL and SCL would be interesting. And one more thing, do you know any other companies who supported a purple livery so well? Thanks for reading my 5:AM ramblings and consider up voting, thank you! Now here are some images to represent it's history... Now for some SAL Engines In this image above you can see the lettering if you look closely under the numbering positioned on the cab siding.
