Southern 722
Title:  Southern 722
Description:  The first Southern Railway steam excursion train into New Orleans was the WALTER DOVE HOMECOMING SPECIAL, which arrived at Union Passenger Terminal on Sunday 28 March 1971 behind 2-8-0 722. (Mr. Dove had been the Southern’s General Road Foreman of Engines and was retiring from a 52-year career with the railroad.) The train had pulled straight into the station, so here on 30 March Mr. Bill Purdie – the Southern’s Master Mechanic-Steam – was looking down from the cab of the locomotive as NOUPT SW8 number 1 was preparing to turn it on the wye. The 722 subsequently ran a couple of excursions from New Orleans to Hattiesburg and back before heading for home on 10 April.

They were sold to NASA in August 1990 and provided parts to maintain the space agency's fleet of ex-Air Force SW8's at the Kennedy Space Center.
