Even I manage a classic shot once in every hundred or so exposures.  WGCR start up power has tied down for the day at the old block agency on the west side of town.  The old semaphores are still in place.

Wiregrass Central GP40 #3023 is on hand for the start up of the third major Claussen shortline, the Atlantic and Gulf.  G&O Railways shipped several WGCR units over from Enterprise, AL to start the former CSX branch from Thomasville, GA to Albany, GA.

WGCR 3023
Title:  WGCR 3023
Description:  In 1990, a GP40 was big power for a tiny shortline in rural Alabama. Here we see 3023 after a fresh coat of paint. Unfortunately the life of this locomotive was considerably short on the G&O. After a brief stint on the Wiregrass Central and a some mechanical and electric issues, she went to Florida to receive some rework. She made one final apperance for the startup of the Altantic & Gulf shortline in Georgia before being sold off. From what I understand this locomotive lives on and serves another shortline in Ohio.
