Eastern Alabama Railway
EARY Switching Job getting ready to work some lime plants in Sylacauga, Al.
How do the locals like the "Yankee" locomotives? Any engineers named "Sherman" on the roster?
I really didn't ask them, but I did make a comment to the engineer that I thought that was a pretty locomotive & he gave me back a wise crack saying yeah, pretty old. What I meant was the paint scheme being pretty. I should've clarified that to him, but he started backing up kicking cars, so I snapped off 1 more shot & left. I know I would like these GP40'S. I like running anything EMD'S much better than GE. It's really nice to be able to film NECR here in the southeast, which is one of my favorite paint schemes. I still want to make a trip to the NECR in the northeast & film more of their units on their own railroad, but at least for now I've been able to film the 2 NECR GP40'S that are running on the EARY.
