Remarks & Notes 
A gathering of noses--from Streamliners at Spencer, preview day. ACL prez Champ Davis was fond of purple, so that became the road's major color for everything from passenger timetable covers to passenger cars and motive power. Alas, it faded pretty quickly in the hot sun of the South, so as soon as he retired, the company changed to basic black with yellow and silver trim. But---restored ACL E3 501 looks pretty nifty on the Spencer turntable all these years later. Maybe purple was a good choice after all...
