Gentlemen:
 
I grew up riding the old C&S back in the 60's, and still happily recall many happy memories, both riding the trains or simply watching them in action.
 
Seems that I really get nothing all that "concrete" about what survives today (motive power and rolling stock) and what doesn't.
 
I clearly recall the handsome 4-8-4, a sharp-looking double-ended diesel, and a diminutive switcher.
 
Awhile ago, I had heard someone say that the double-ended diesel survives, but has been rebuilt, changing its original design.
 
I do appreciate any and all help on this, via those who are much more knowledgeable than I am on the subject......my thanks in advance........

The 4-8-4 was donated to the Henry Ford Museum in Michigan. That museum later sold the locomotive to a private collector. The balance of the Centerville and Southwestern now operates in a park in Phillipsburg, New Jersey.

Appreciate this input..........thanks!
 
Hard to believe that I last rode this great little railroad over 45 years ago; it sure was a hoot while it lasted.
 
I sure hope that 4-8-4 is well revered (and deservedly so) by her current owner.......sure hope she at least runs on occasion!
