Remarks & Notes 
No safety vests were required on a hot summer day - or any day - back in 1974. One of the few RS-1s to get orange and white leads two unrepainted Alcos as they put together a train for the Prattville mill. The Alcos did everything - switching, transfers, the mill run - except power the big road trains.
