June Mystery Photo #2greenspun.com : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread
Hmmmm.....here's a good one. If I reveal the photographer, you'll be able to guess it too quickly with a little net-tective work. So...for now he shall remain anonymous. (Until someone or nobody guesses).
As I said, we will take the "Mystery Photo" section to a new page coming in July!

Bill Thompson wins. In this George Elwood photo taken in the Birmingham, Alabama locomotive facilities in 1967, we see an E7 (obviously well road-worn), a steam boilered Geep and what appears to be an SDP35 all standing watch next to a Tennessee Central TOFC trailer.
Can anyone tell us more about the end of Seaboard's Birmingham passenger service? (Which is obviously just right around the corner by looking at this photo).

It's Birmingham, Alabama.

Are you all looking at the same photo I posted? From the answers I'm getting, both on the Q&A and direct email, you must not be.
THINK....Study the photo carefully. Where on the SAL system would you catch a picture that looks like it's the end of the world??

It looks like a roundhouse pit has been filled with gravel. I'll guess Wildwood, Fl.

I'd rather see the Tennessee Central trailer....

Okay, I give up. Where is the mystery photo located? JG
