SOU 2820 Editors Pick!        
Southen GP38 2820 leads southbound local No. 65 across the Lake Pontchartrain trestle. The locomotive left Oliver Yard in New Orleans early this morning on local No. 64, worked it way up to Picayune, Missisippi; and is now heading back home. The two dirty roof-hatch boxcars handle clay for the American-Standard plumbing fixture plant five miles north of Oliver Yard. (month approximate)

Kevin Hunt General The 2820 is a special locomotive to me as It was (by that time NS) the first locomotive I ever worked with on the railroad. Now she has been chop nosed and rebuilt to a GP38-2 for NS. 7/22/2009 11:12:39 AM
