Remarks & Notes 
Can you imagine my surprise when these two beauties showed up in Appalachia? This was in October 1972, and Southern had only recently repainted its E8s for service on its premiere train, the "Southern Crescent." It was exceedingly rare for an E-unit of any kind to make an appearance here, but two of the units--6915 and 6911--were pulled from the passenger pool to bring a board of directors special to Appalachia. That morning, they were spotted at the now-gone Westmoreland Coal Transloader.
