Wilmington NC Info

Does anyone have any photos of Wilmington NC and its ACL Headquarters facilities that could be loaned for copying? I am from Wilmington, and my uncle Harry Smith Sr worked in the electrical shops. I already have Rails To Weeds Volume 1 and 2 about the area. Any memories of Wilmington or info would be appreciated! Thank you, Marc Hamel

Marc, I'm also from Wilmington and am very interested in gathering any information on the ACL in Wilmington that I can. I have several photos, most of which you may have seen. If you have an interest in copies of these, email me with a fax or address and I'll send them. I plan to model the upper ACL yard in HO circa 1950's. I have may fond memories of riding the local into Wilmington from Florence, riding in the vestibule of the last car as the train backed over the bridge, through the 'trench' and into the station. I'll never know why they tore down the terminal building!
