One of many interesting wood trestles on the C&G
Columbus & Greenville SW1 #505 resting at Greenwood, MS || May 1972
Columbus & Greenville Railway on a beautiful spring day. A big thanks to the C&G for their hospitality and for allowing my friend and I to tour the property unattended. You can find a framed cop... (more)
This was one of the last of the really soulful old southern shortlines. Hey, I always wondered it there were really any ties under a lot of those rails.
This was really a ramshackle operation and even in the 70s it recalled the "Mixed Train Daily" sort of shortline.
This ain't no Armstrong turntable shortline, no sir, we got a Massey Ferguson turntable.
Columbus & Greenville Whitcomb 65-Ton #42 at Greenville, MS || May 1972
Columbus & Greenville SD28 #702 working at Greenwood, MS in May 1972.
Former TRRA SW1, now CAGY #506 still in TRRA colors at Columbus, MS in August 1973.
As I recall only one of these ever got this paint job. Unfortunately catching the C&G on the road was a hard thing to do.
One of the most rare EMD models produced, C&G 701 was one of two built for the C&G and became ICG then IC 9450.
Ex-TRRA unit minimally relittered. That's pretty much the old C&G way, just gettin' by.
This was a great operation but never seemed to be able to catch them out on the road. At the time the Holiday Inn there was the cheapest in the entire US ($16 a night).
