  1. More!!

  2. High hood flares from the only two railways that bought them new (if memory serves), awesome!

  3. I sure miss that SOUTHERN paint scheme. Nice to see it in Ontario !!!

  4. Thanks, Stephen. Here’s what I found regarding the alpha character:

    That’s the Locomotive Computer Check Letter. Here’s the formula from
    Nuckles & Tillotson’s book “Southern Railway System”

    To compute unknown check letters for Southern Diesel locomotives, the
    following formula can be used:

    1. Take any four-digit road number (add zeros in front of the number for
    any two or three digit numbers).

    2. Add the first digit, plus twice the second, plus third, plus twice
    the fourth. (If doubling exceeds a single digit total, then add the two
    digits in the total.)

    3. Then take the sum and subtract from the next multiple of ten
    (10,20,30,etc) which will give a single digit remainder.

    4. Convert this one digit remainder to a letter as follows:
    0=A, 1=F, 2=H, 3=J, 4=K, 5=L, 6=R, 7=T, 8=W, 9=X

  5. Oh my goodness. this is nice Earl. Curious what the “K” means beside 3167?
