NS F9ABBA Executive Special "955" passing the Southeastern Railway Museum   Contributor's Pick!       
Our crew positioned the 8202 by the derail for this "photo opportunity runby"! It was 97 degrees on this hot Saturday! The only thing that could make this scene better would be lots of loaded coaches of railfans on this excursion train. I'm sure that NS could have filled this train with paying riders!

Gary Cullen General We knew that the F's were coming down the mainline ahead of time. We disconnected our consist & "set up" the 8202 to pose for the photo between the 2:30 & 3:30 train rides at the Southeastern Railway Museum. We knew that this would make a great shot! The train looked great! Very, very clean! 8/21/2007 9:11:36 AM

Dorian Cooling General Wow thats a perfect shot, what shortline does that SW7 currently work under? 11/25/2009 2:04:44 PM
Gary Cullen General The SW7 belongs to the Southeastern Railway Museum. It is currently getting a minor mechanical overhall. It is now in the reassembly process. The loco should be back on the rails sometime in 2010. I cant wait until it is completed so I can run it again! 1/20/2010 7:03:08 PM
