This was one of the last of the really soulful old southern shortlines. Hey, I always wondered it there were really any ties under a lot of those rails.

Frisco GP38AC #661 and 645 are tied down for New Year's Eve in gloomy weather
As I recall only one of these ever got this paint job. Unfortunately catching the C&G on the road was a hard thing to do.

An Alco parked in a soulful environment that one could only expect from the GM&O.
Ex-TRRA unit minimally relittered. That's pretty much the old C&G way, just gettin' by.
This was a great operation but never seemed to be able to catch them out on the road. At the time the Holiday Inn there was the cheapest in the entire US ($16 a night).
GAGY 703 came from the Southern Railway.
Just out of the shop, Columbus & Greenville 8720 rests over the pit behind the CAGY roundhouse.
