    The GP35's with those trade in trucks were cool to see roaming the Southern back in the day. I actually think I have a pic of the 2715 when she was lettered Southern and still roaming in the wild.

    It's a nice little museum, which I think is located at the former CofG Shops. From a family visit in September 2014, this neat li'l ex-Georgia Power saddletanker was in steam.

    Looks like it's changed a bit since I was there. That is a cool little tea kettle :D

    Looks like they need to re-install a few walls and windows. Is this an isolated operation, or still connected to the outside world?

    Looking at my SPV Atlas and other sources, I'm thinking that Savannah's museum site is isolated.

    If memory serves, Hardcoaler is correct. Cut off from the outside RR world. Anything new would likely have to be trucked in.

    Looking at the background in those pictures, I developed a sensation of this possibility. :(
