Help needed finding article on ACL 4-8-4greenspun.com : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread
For the article on ACL's 4-8-4s I am writing for the next Lines South, I need to find an article that appeared 10 or 15 years ago, in either Trains or Railfan & Railroad I think, entitled something like "Locos that Never Were." In it was a sketch of a proposed ACL 4-8-4, or maybe it was a 4-4-4-4, in an experimental paint scheme. Can anyone remember what magazine and issue this was in? Also, if there are other articles out there that discuss the ACL 4-8-4s at any length, including comparisons between them and other 4-8-4s, I would appreciate those references too. Thanks.

Just after the 1975 "Trains" mention of the Kuhler-streamlined 4-4- 4-4 that never got built, the venerable David P. Morgan, Editor Emeritus at that time, gave me a long printed photo and a large-format negative of that machine, done for the ACL advertising people, I expect. It's a sentimental piece for me, because Morgan died very shortly afterward. I lent the negative some years ago to Warren Calloway, who's at / members.aol.com/CALLOWAYW/Seaboard_Air_Line.html/, and he could make you a photo print from it. (Warren, are you there? I need to hear from you!)

Pages 34 & 35 of the August, 1960 issue of Model Railroader has HOscale plans for the 1800 series as well as two photos and a too-short explanation.

The drawing you are looking for - a proposed 4-4-4-4 duplex drive as drawn by Otto Kuhler - appeared first in the November, 1959, issue of Trains Magazine on pages 24-25. The article was on duplex drive locomotives. It appeared again on page 31 of the September, 1975, issue of Trains in an article on equipment proposed but never built.
