Southern train #167
Title:  Southern train #167
Description:  Southern 211 was an ex-CofG GP35. I have been told that a quick way to determine if a Southern unit was ex-CofG or ex-Southern was that ex-CofG units were set up to run short hood forward while ex-Southern units were set up to run long hood forward. Note the small block near the end of the short hood end of the frame on the 211 indicating the forward end. I am told this means of identification applies to Southern/CofG GP7's as well

New paint for an old classic
Title:  New paint for an old classic
Description:  One of Southern's hi hood GP 30s is in the yard at Manassas, part of the consist for the Strasburg Turn. NS did not repaint a lot of the older power that was likely to be retired, so it was something of a surprise to find this. I never saw another NS painted GP 30, either SOU or NW.

Still Southern, mostly
Title:  Still Southern, mostly
Description:  Two years after the NS merger, there was still a lot of predecessor power around. This set was on a train at Danville KY on the Rathole. There's more to it than meets the eye. The leader is obvious, one of the unusual high short hood GP 30's only NW and Southern got; the third unit is ex Central of Georgia and carries its C of G number. The trailing unit is actually at home; it's sublettered for the CNO&TP.

Four axle power
Title:  Four axle power
Description:  Most of the through freights I saw this day had six axle power. One that didn't was this one, which came south with four 4 axle units. Interestingly for you numbercrunchers, the two units to the right had opposing numbers. Note GP 30, number 2625, and ahead of it, GP 35 2526. A GE rounds out the shot.

Hi hood leader
Title:  Hi hood leader
Description:  Not a surprise on the Southern, all of whose road units were high short hood. This was not to house a steam generator, and on some units. Southern thought they offered more protection in case of a collision, though they ran most of their power long hood forward anyway, along with neighbor N&W. Thus it was unusual to see one with the short hood leading, as is the case here. The cab on this unit is also replete with Southern touches. The most noticeable is the computer check letter, in this case the "A" next to the road number. All Southern units had one, to distinguish them in the computer system in place at the time. There was a formula for assigning them, so the system was not random. Also, note the initials below the number. This engine is sublettered for subsidiary Cincinnati, New Orleans and Texas Pacific, which was the owner of the line from Cincy to Atlanta. Other subletterings were for Central of Georgia, Alabama Great Southern, and Georgia Southern and Florida, among others.

Left on the main
Title:  Left on the main
Description:  Two units work their set off into Pomona Yard as their train waits on the main. The Amtrak station at that time was at the yard office, with a small ticket window and waiting room. I got there around 1 PM that day, waiting for the northbound Crescent, which would arrive around 3:30 AM. I had a front row seat for hours of action as trains stopped to make set offs and pick ups, and the yard engines did their thing in between. It was a great place to see the action.
