 Post subject: Carswell/GD Fort Worth query
PostPosted: Tue May 18, 1999 12:41 pm 

Did General Dynamics aircraft plant [now Lockheed], located at the former Carswell Air Force Base [now Navy Ft. Worth Joint Reserve Base] Fort Worth, Texas, ever have its own plant switcher? For that matter, did Carswell AFB itself have a diesel locmotive of its own? If so to either, what happened to them?

<br>GD had it's own shop switcher, or more accurately, the Air Force did - it was Air Force Plant 4, I worked there for several years, a couple years in shipping/recieving where I could see the thing from my desk, it was a GE 44 tonner painted dark blue in AF livery. Never saw it move. Don't what became of it, MOP (UP?) ripped up the tracks to the plant (and Carswell) some years ago. <br>Don't know about Carswell, but I kinda doubt it, MoPac ran a string of 8-10 tank cars full of jet fuel in there with their own SW every couple days. B-52's are evidently pretty thirsty critters, and they kept at least two in the air at all times. <br>
