The Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum held a Train Fest in Chattanooga, Tennessee over the Labor Day 2011 weekend. It featured restored Southern #630 Consolidation on a steam fan trip. Included are shots of green-livery Southern F-Unit 6133, the TVRRM Budd RDC-1 and main-line Norkfolk Southern diesel freights. Click here to enjoy a 15-minute video:

This GNRR SW-1 locomotive was purchased by Wilds Pierce several years ago. GNRR SW-1 #77 is a stripped down shell that Wilds had cosmetically restored and donated to the Cobb County Safety Village on Al Bishop Drive (note the installation of the SW-1 in photos at this county web site!) School children will be taught RR crossing safety as well as school bus safety procedures at this site. Read more in the December 25th, 2010 AJC newspaper article.
This SW1 was built in 1947 by EMD. The 600hp switcher was one of the first models in a long currently existing line of diesel locomotives produced by EMD which itself is now a division of Caterpillar. The loco worked the marble quarries for many years and was declared fit for parts only. The SW1 is unusual looking in that it had large front and rear walk ways with a large tool box mounted under the front air intake. These small switchers are quite rare today and generally are only occasionally found in museums.
