The eastbound long-range local rolls into Opelika. At the time this photo was made, their would have been plenty for 46's crew to do in Opelika. I doubt the current NS counterpart to 46 has much... (more)

An ancient geep - coupled to a much newer GP38-2 - gets some attention at Columbus. First-generation units like 8233 are still out on the main in local service, but the end draws near for them.

Way back when, GPs were much more common than GEs or SDs, at least in my neck of the woods. That made this set of SDs a treat on a nice spring afternoon. In just a few seconds the operator will ... (more)

With fog from Mobile Bay, the usual Deep South summer haze, and emissions from huge nearby paper mills, it can (or could back then) be tough to get even slight color in the sky. This day was shap... (more)

The power - three SD40s plus three B367s - kind of tells you that is probably an important CSX train sitting just beyond the signal. That doesn't matter, as the Southern (well, ok... NS) long-ran... (more)

Southern went in big for the GP35, eventually owning 76. Five, including 244, were purchased for Central of Georgia, and stood out by having three-digit numbers and Blomberg trucks. The other 71... (more)

A Southern freight - with three GP35s and a single GP30 - gets to Chickasaw just ahead of the shadows. All those AAR Type-Bs make the GP30 with its Blombergs the oddball in this scene. That is B... (more)

In the 1970s, the southbound Crescent did not get to Hattiesburg until very late in the afternoon, which could be a problem on short winter days. That's why the approach to the Leaf River Bridge ... (more)

Fanning way back when in the Deep South usually meant dirty diesels, but not so much on Southern, and this image shows why - GP38 2819 getting a high-pressure bath at Pegram.

Members of the two long-range locals (46 is working just around the curve west of the depot) mingle at the depot, and a few hit the Coke machine in the old waiting room. If I recall, the sodas (d... (more)
