    I would guess m-o-w. Judging by that door stop, it might possibly be an old double door.

    I was correct about it having two doors. (Plug/slide combo.) I also see a full ladder and at least part of the roof walk is still there.

    Aaaah, that makes sense now. Thank you!;)

    Can barely make out the "Norfolk & Western" on the side.

    Pretty neat! The Atlanta, Birmingham and Coast was a hard luck road from the start, entering receivership in 1909 after its formation in 1905. It reorganized in 1916 and again went bust in 1921. It was bought by the ACL in 1927 after rumors of acquisition by the Frisco or SAL failed to materialize. The ACL fully absorbed the AB&C in 1946 and it was soon heavily rebuilt, becoming the ACL's Western Division. Somewhere I read that ACL men called the AB&C a "wooden axle railroad" because of its decrepit condition.

    The corners between panels on the front seem to be a little bit more rounded on CP 8757 than on earlier GE's. Maybe it's the light.

    All sorts of fun stuff in this shot-4 different locos in some pretty cool paint, and that Farmrail caboose is neat!(y)
