Remarks & Notes 
Clinchfield's last four F-units were operated as an A-B-B-A set working out of the coalfield terminal at Dante in 1981. Here, the "final four" are taking a break from weighing coal. Thankfully, the last Dick Sanborn saved them from scrap, and they were rebuild and kept in service, first as Seaboard System units, and then CSX. The 200 (which became 118) was the CRR's only steam generator-equipped unit (purchased new, that is). It handled the last runs of the company's passenger trains, and also pulled the annual Santa train, as well as inspection trains. Most of the time, however, it was just another freight unit. All four units still exist today.
