Remarks & Notes 
Apalachicola Northern GP15T #721 is the last of three units built for AN in 1983 to still wear its AN colors. It was delivered in yellow with blue stripes and lettering and repainted into this scheme while the Port St Joe route was still hauling paper products between Port St Joe and Chattahoochee, Florida. G&W acquired the AN in 2005, and due to the closure of the paper mill and other online industries, the line is currently dormant. 720 and 722 have been repainted G&W orange and renumbered, and operates on the Columbus & Chattahoochee Railroad. 721 now works where needed around the G&W's southern system, and has recently been serving the former Chattahoochee Industrial Railroad (acquired by G&W in 2003), where it was photographed here pulling 31 cars from the Georgia Pacific paper mill at Cedar Springs towards Saffold. The coil steel loads will be set off at a siding just ahead for another online customer.
