This may be nitpicking but no Southern never onwed or operated PA-1s. They did however have PA-3s. There are distinctive differences between the two model types--Larry

Yes... ALCO PA3s 6900-6905, built in 11/ and 12/53. In Whithers book "Diesels of the Southern Railway," they list the units as being CNO&TP but the number series is incorrect for the subsidiary... they likely were owned by the NO&NE. Most, if not all, survived long enough to be repainted in the black, aluminum and gold scheme though all were retired and traded-in to EMD in 1965.
