With all the news on the disposition of the units, im actually kinda curious on the units origins if they have anything. To be honest I've never looked it up myself and Im curious if anyone knows how they all started. Were they SOU units? N&W? or something completely different?

The N&W never owned any F-units.  The OCS A units are ex-B&O, the two B's are ex CGW.  They went through several owners before arriving on the NS.

Here's the gory details:

Do the F units inherited from the Wabash merger count?  I know a few went to CNJ on lease in the 60's in N&W paint.

Only as second-hand.  Same for the ex-Wabash E-units.

The Altoona works website lists the history of the units, their rebuild was fairly well documented in the railfan community.

If I reject reality and substitute 3-Rail, how does Narrow Gauge come into all of this?
