  • This Davenport 0-40 "fireless" locomotive was built in the 1950s to haul coal for a power plant. It is basically an air tank on wheels, holding steam from the power plant in order to operate and could be topped off when needed. A single charge of steam was enough for about four hours of operation.

  • Another one of my favorite items in the collection is this Alco HH900, an extremely rare and early diesel locomotive. This unit was delivered in 1937 and continued to earn her keep into the 1980s and is beautifully restored to static display.

  • I didn't grow up in Chicago, but I've always loved the green and yellow colors of CNW which look great on this very out of place and far from home commuter car.

  • HoD has some very interesting equipment in their collection. Sadly, most guests seem to have no interest in exploring and checking out what's there. This Amtrak Material Handling Car is one of my favorite items in the collection, from the days when express mail was carried on the end of Amtrak's passenger trains.

  • A EMD SW-8 diesel locomotive on display during the Day Out with Thomas at the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum in Calera, Alabama. From the museum's web page: Electro-Motive Division (EMD) SW8 Switch engines 2019 and 2022 we built in 1951. They are powered by a 8-Cylinder 567 engine producing 800 horsepower. They have an overall length of 44’5” from coupler to coupler and have a fully loaded weight of 230,000 pounds. The SW8 was considered the medium horsepower switching locomotive in EMD’s catalog. 2019 and 2022 were 2 of 41 locomotives ordered by the U. S. Army. This order was the largest ever for SW8s from any purchaser. Carrying road Nos. 2000 through 2040 they were constructed between May and June, 1951 at EMD’s plan No. 3 in Cleveland, Ohio. Not only do 2019 and 2022 provide the motive power for the trains of the Calera & Shelby Railroad, they are also U. S. Army veterans who saw service in Korea from 1951 to 1953. With the invasion of South Korea by North Korea, the United States, along with its United Nations partners, quickly began to ship men and supplies to halt the communist advance. Rail transportation proved to be a vital component during the conflict. The Japanese had built the Korean rail system after having annexed Korea. This was done in support of Japan’s invasion of Manchuria. Interestingly, the Japanese built the system to the standards of the American railroad industry, utilizing standard gauge and knuckle couplers. The Korean government assumed control of the system under the name, Korean National Railroad (KNR) at the end of WWII. Throughout the Korean conflict, the U. S. Army depended heavily on the KNR for movement of men and supplies from the harbor at Pusan to the scene of the fighting. At the time of the invasion, the KNR had about 300 serviceable steam engines and some 6,000 cars. During the first year of the war, it became clear that the steam locomotives and equipment left behind by the Japanese were being stretched too thin to support the U. S. military’s needs. The Army made plans to purchase new diesel locomotives for use in Korea. The U. S. Army’s order for 41 SW8 was the largest order for SW8s from any purchaser, more than any Class 1 railroad. After construction, they were loaded aboard ship in New York Harbor for the trip through the Panama Canal to Pusan, Korea. When the diesels arrived in Korea, railroad operations were being conducted by the 712th and 724th Transportation Railway Operating Battalions under the direction of the 3rd Military Railway Service of the United States Army. Once the diesels arrived, the usual practice was for the SW8s to be operated by two American soldiers with a Korean pilot. Trains carried men, ammunition, and supplies. Hospital trains loaded with wounded personnel ran regularly from the front to the harbor at Pusan. As the fighting wound down and a cease-fire was put into effect, the Army shipped most of the diesels back to the United States in 1953. Some of the SW8s remained behind and continue in KNR service today. No. 2019 was sent back to EMD for reconditioning in September 1953, and No. 2022 was rebuilt in June of 1955. Both engines along with their sisters saw service at military bases in the states until being retired in the early 1990s. Nos. 2019 and 2022 finished out their service careers at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky and were acquired through government surplus by the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum in 1995.

  • CSX's YN2 paint scheme was the classiest the railroad ever wore. Here Dash 9 number 9002 is on the point of a southbound G229 in Calera, Alabama. The G train had ran into congestion behind it and now has 4 hours to make Montgomery. The road and railroad parallel each-other for a few miles starting here, at the south entrance to Calera. This is the ex-Louisville and Nashville mainline between Cincy and New Orleans.
