S&A 4-6-2 750

Reproduced 35mm Slide

Photo shot by my Dad, Jay Thomson, at East Point, GA in July 1973


Savannah & Atlanta 4-6-2 750 under steam pulling a Southern Railway excursion train by the tower at East Point, Georgia on July 5, 1973. This unit was one of the earliest used in Southern's excursion program of the early 70s. Today this beauty - built by ALCo in 1915 for the Florida East Coast as their #80 and sold to the S&A in 1935 - is preserved at the Southeastern Railway Museum in Duluth, GA.
