Remarks & Notes 
It's orange paint faded and weathered, DT&I 988 blends with the brick and rusted metal buildings of the former Western Railway of Alabama backshop area. RSCo used the facility in the early 1970s to redo old locos and cars, and create slugs - mostly for L&N - from old Alcos.

My favorite railroad when I was young and even today. When I was growing up I can remember seeing these big orange beasts lumbering around the Jackson shops and yard.
