 It has been almost two decades since the pine forests and re earth valleys of the South echoed daily to the lonesome wail of steam locomotive whistles. An entire generation has grown up along the tracks, never seeing the trail of soft coal smoke dusting off the tall pines, or hearing the first hesitant bark of an engine starting up from a rural station stop, flushing rabbits and deer from their woodland lairs.
The major railroad of the South has not forgotten and has the guts to do something about it. This railroad, whose president still enjoys notching back the throttle of a Mikado, a Pacific or a pair of Consolidations, is concerned enough for its heritage to continue running steam excursions. This railroad, which fondly remembers its soot and cinder past, is paradoxically one of the most advanced and prosperous in the nation. "BIG JOHN" hopper cars, remotely-controlled diesel locomotives, computer processing and fully automated loading facilities at some terminals, attest to the leadership role of this railroad, which sets the pace of the entire industry.
This railroad is, of course, the Southern Railway System. This book is about the steam locomotives which a forward-looking management has seen fit to preserve as a reminder of the spectacular age of steam.
