SCL 5140 waits at the junction between the main and the branch to Croghan. The crew has taken a GP7 and a few cars into the few shippers left west of the Ashley River across from downtown Charles... (more)

The lead diesel on a northbound leans into the super-elevated curve just south of Locust Grove. Back when EMD was king, GE C-Cs barely made a dent in Southern's SD-dominated six-axle fleet.
Riding 2707's footboards, a crew member on an eastbound freight (136 or 138?) looks down the WofA interchange tracks and contemplated the next few switching moves.
