The Redmond Files... Southern In B&W
Author: MaryMcPherson

After hanging out with Royal Hudson #2839 on June 3rd, 1979, George was headed home to Centralia, Illinois.  On the way, he caught some action on the Southern’s St. Louis line.
 
1. GP35 #2526 is running long-hood-forward, just as the Southern’s brass intended, as it crosses the Wabash River entering Mt. Carmel, Illinois.
 
2. Now west of Mt. Carmel, the train seems to have grown a bit.
 
3. The train is caught one more time, passing the Southern depot at Albion, Illinois.

Great pics, one of the classiest schemes of railroading's past.

#2526 was a great catch.  #2526 was built by EMD 12/1965 from wrecked GP30 same number. 
All Southern GP30 and GP35 units are set up for short hood forward operation.
Thanks for this very interesting posting.
