SOU 2761
Title:  SOU 2761
Description:  While assigned to yard and transfer service at New Orleans, Southern GP38 2761 was "customized" with green paint insde the "O" in its road name. While this was a standard feature on the railroad's freight cars -- a part of its "Southern Gives a Green Light to Innovation" marketing campaign -- it was wasn't suppose to show up on locomotives! The 2761 was built with a small 1700-gallon fuel tank, but here it has a 3,000-gallon tank from a retired SD35. The building on the right is the tower at Oliver Yard. (month approximate)
