G&M southbound near Philadelphia, Miss.         
Gulf & Mississippi No. 8009 leading its train n April 1988 (date unknown) on the former Aretesia-to-Mobile main. This engine was built as IC No. 9009 in April 1954 and was later sold to the Puget Sound & Pacific in 1997. Trailing engine is ex-ICG 8266. With apologies to Tom Sink, but I used his photo because the only time I saw this unit, between Bay Springs and Laurel with the late Sam Lindsey, the sprocket in my Vivitart 220/SL stripped my film and all I got was to watch it go by! Thanks, Tom.
