The Southern Railway system was a relatively unknown carrier until the 1960s when its management style and business objectives dramatically shifted course. One of the first major railroads to dieselize, it's quiet business methods were transformed into the benchmark railroad of the 1960s. The author, a former Southern employee, relates the story of this remarkable railroad through the medium of more that 200 vintage Color images with captions.
This is a photo tour of the railroad from Washington, DC to New Orleans and other routes. More shots of scenes than 3/4 wedge roster shots, but some roster shots are included. The last page includes Southern's lone EMD NW5.
