I have built this model and it is very nice. I believe the "tobacco route" was the Atlantic and East Carolina.
I painted and lettered mine for AC&Y; Richard Hendrickson was kind enough to provide photos from his collection and Jerry Glow made the decals for me.

Indeed a Speedwitch model. The Erie sold ten of them to West India Fruit. I cannot remember the reporting marks for the other RR in North Carolina but it's Herald displayed a tobacco leaf and declared it "The Tobacco Route." Seems like there was a third RR but cannot remember what it was, ACY maybe.
