    At least one of these switchers was a harbinger of things to come. October 1987, Norris Yard in Irondale, AL.

    Yes, it's a roadswitcher. But I couldn't resist.

    Yes, that particular short line--whatever is left of it--is part of the NS system.

    What's amazing is that sister unit NS 1616 survives (inoperative) at the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer, NC. [Photo not mine, is from www.aeromoe.com]

    Not NS, but of NS heritage. A SOU cow and calf pair as seen in December 1977 at John Sevier Yard in Knoxville, TN.

    NS SW-1500s #2309 in June of 1993 at Charlotte, NC and the #2305 in July of '89 at Biltmore, NC. All of NS's SW-1500s have since departed from the roster.
