Remarks & Notes 
A five-unit consist of Alcos--FA2/RS3/FB2/RS3/FA2--coils through a reverse curve near Emerson, Georgia, on the Georgia-owned Western & Atlantic. This train is probably fast freight number 42, bound for Etowah, Corbin and eventually Cincinnati (DeCoursey). At the time, all locomotives leading over the Knoxville & Atlanta Division of the L&N from Etowah to Corbin were required to have ATC (Automatic Train Control). The 359 is one such unit. Original image by the late Dick Sharpless.
