Southern Steam

Mountain Class

 After WWI Southern needed heavy mainline power. The 4-8-2 was their answer from Baldwin in 1917. The first T class mountains were numbers: Southern 1450-1472, CNO&TP 840-854 (renumbered 6490-6494), and AGS 280-281 (renumbered 6690-6691), then again to 6695-6696.

   In 1919 USRA 4-8-2ís from Baldwin class Ts-1 arrived, numbers: Southern 1475-1499, CNO&TP 6495-6499, and AGS 6692-6694.

   These locomotives were Southernís mainline passenger power on the Washington- Atlanta, Bristol-Memphis, Atlanta-Birmingham, all Asheville Division Trains and Spencer-Columbia. By 1928 the mountain class engines had been replaced on fast mainline runs by the newer Ps-4 Pacificís. The mountains however remained on the secondary trains and Ashville Division until the diesels arrived after WWII.

   Our Florida Trains were pulled by these engines as far south as Macon Georgia, then replaced by smaller Pacificís or Ten Wheelers for the lighter rail and flat south Georgia terrain of the GS&F. These engines ran into Jacksonville via ACL trackage rights on joint Kansas City Florida Special (via Sou-Macon, Jesup ACL Jax) Skyland (via Sou -Columbia, Hardeeville ACL- Savannah, Jesup, Jacksonville) which used Pacificís.

    As with all Southern Steam Passenger Locomotives these engines wore the Green Paint Scheme. All retired between 1951/1953.

Mikado Class

In 1911 Baldwin delivered Southernís first Class Ms 2-8-2 Mikado numbered: SOU 4501-4533. In 1912-1914 Baldwin built numbers: 4534-4603. In 1914 Alco built numbers: 4604-4623. Baldwin built ex V&SW Rwy 101-110 in 1911-1913, SOU renumbered as 4624-4633. In 1914 Alco built numbers 4634 & 4635, ex-V&SW 111-112.  1911-1913 Baldwin built CNO&TP 6250-6284.  1913 Baldwin built AGS 6600-6604, 1914 Alco built AGS #6605, 1917 Lima built AGS #6606-6611.

    In 1918-1923 the USRA class Ms1 Light Mikado was built by Alco as numbers: SOU 4750-4774, CNO&TP 6285-6319, AGS 6612-6621. It is this engine that we recognize as they were used in the Columbia, Savannah, Jacksonville service via ACL trackage rights between Hardeeville SC to Jacksonville.

   The Ms2 class was an experimental engine using the Ms class engine with an auxiliary powered tender between 1915-1924, they were numbers 4535-4539, and 4561 & 4576.

   In 1914 the NO&NE class Ms3 were built by Baldwin. Renumbered from 500-504 to 6910-6914, and then to 6940-6944 after joining the Southern.

    In 1923-1928 the Ms4 class Heavy Mikadoís were built by Alco and Baldwin for Southern numbered: 4800-4884 by Alco, and #4885-4914 by Baldwin. CNO&TP 6320-6337 built by Alco, along with AGS 6622-6629. These locomotives became Southernís primary Mainline freight Power.

   The Ms5 was rebuilt in 1928 from 2-10-2 #5234 built by Brooks in 1918. Rebuilt as #4998 it was used in freight and passenger service. The Ms6 were also rebuilt 2-10-2ís built by brooks in 1918. These engines were rebuilt between 1929-1931 as #4995-4997, & 4999 and were used for freight service.

   The Ms7 class was acquired for the Erie in 1942. These locomotives had Vanderbilt Tenders and were built in 1911-1913. AGS numbered these engines: 6630-6636.  The 6630,6632-6634 were built by Baldwin between 1911-1913, # 6631& 6636 were built by Alco in 1912&13, and #6635 was built by Lima in 1913.

   The Ms class was retired between 1939-1952 with the majority being from 49-52.  The 4501 was sold to the Kentucky and Tennessee in 1948, Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum acquired the engine which started Southernís famous steam excursion program. 4501 is currently on static display in Chattanoogaís TVRM Museum. The Ms1 class was retired between 1949-1953. (The Ms2 class was back to the Ms1 class after 1924 having regular tenders reapplied.) The Ms3 class was retired between 1946-1947. The Ms4 class was retired between 1950-1954. The Ms5 & Ms6 were retired in 1952. The Ms7 class was retired between 1949-1952.

The Consolidation 2-8-0 was the workhorse of the Southern and itís subsidiaries. These locomotives were very suitable for light-rail mainlines, branchlines, and yard service. Their numbers and variations were large and for this reason we will follow the Georgia Florida & Southern (GS&F), a subsidiary of the Southern that entered Jacksonville form Macon GA.

   The GS&F had the Ks and Ks1 class, which were used for mainline freight and mixed service. The Ks was built by Baldwin in 1910, their original numbers were 400-408, later renumber to 8330-8338. The Ks1 class was built in by Alco in 1912 numbered: 409-414, later renumber to 8339-8344.  The Ks & Ks1 all retired between 1951-52.

   The main passenger engine for the GS&F was the ďTen WheelerĒ, but many Southern Light Pacificís did the honors.  The first in this class was the Fs11 4-6-0 built by Baldwin in 1906-1907 numbers: 160-163 renumbered 8230-8233 all retired between 1929-1942. Followed by the Fs17 built by Baldwin between 1914-1915 numbers: 175-182 renumbered 8250-8257.all retired between 1947-1949. The third in this class was the Es20 built by Alco and Baldwin between 1900-1904, these engines were used in freight service. The Alco built were numbers 135-138 renumbered 8300-8303 retired between 1928-1939, The Baldwinís were numbers 139&140 renumbered 8304&8305 retired in 1939&1929 respectively.

   The switching power for the GS&F was the 0-6-0 class A7. In 1910 Baldwin built numbers 200&201 renumbered 8370&8371, and in 1912 Alco built numbers: 202-205 renumbered 8372-8375. These engines were retired between 1948&1952.

   The St. Johns River Terminal was a Subsidiary of the Southern/GS&F in Jacksonville that performed all switching duties. Their motive power was the 0-6-0 A4 & A7class. In 1908 Baldwin built A4 #2 renumbered 8550, sold in 1941. 1909 Baldwin built A4#3 renumbered 8551, sold in 1947. Also in 1909 Baldwin built A7 class #4 renumbered 8555, scrapped in 1953. The last of the A7 class was built by Lima in 1912 as #5 renumbered 8556, retired in 1953.

Southern Diesels


    Southern Received 3 E6ís in 1941 numbers; 2800-2802 for the new Southerner, also that same year received 4 sets of A-B E6ís numbers; 2900-2903A, and 2950-2953B for the Tennessean and Crescent. These units were delivered in the famous Green with Imitation Aluminum (Light Gray) many refer to as the Pelican scheme with the Aluminum trim on the roof. This first scheme was replaced in 1949 by painting the roof green and having the lower band of Aluminum widened. These units were upgraded to E8ís and after 1958 green began being replaced by black on all units. All E6ís were retired by 1968.

    E7Aís began to arrive in 1946 with the ďPelicanĒ scheme applied, numbers; 2905-2916. In 1949 A units 2917-2922 arrived with the new scheme. These units were upgraded to E8ís and in 1958 the green began being replaced by black. All E7ís were retired by 1973.

     E8Aís began to arrive in 1951 (CNO&TP) numbers; 2923-2929. In 1953 (NO&NE) units; 6906-6915 arrived. After 1958 these units were also painted black. In 1972 units 2923-2929 were renumbered 6900-6905, & 6916, also all 17 E8ís were repainted back to Green for Southern Crescent service. Southern joined Amtrak on February 1st 1979 making the end of the E8ís near. All units sold by 1979 after use by Amtrak. #6900 was donated to Spencer NC Transportation Museum, #6901 was donated to Southestern Railway Museum outside Atlanta GA and used by the New Georgia Railroad, returned  and repainted after a C of G look- alike paint job was applied. #6906 & 6910 were scrapped on site after wreck in 1978, and #6914 is at TVRM after being used in New Jersey Commuter service.

     The Southern Railway was second only to Santa Fe in the number of F units owned. Dieselization of freight service began in 1941 with the arrival of six FTís from EMD. The FTís and Freight F3ís were painted Black with Imitation Aluminum stripes, all units repainted Green after1949. Southern FTís had couplers instead of drawbars for separate unit operation. In the early 1950ís Spencer Shops rebuilt eleven units and were upgraded to F7ís, the cost was to high and by 1959 all FTís were out of service, many were trade-ins for SD24ís.  A few FTBís  had been rebuilt into steam cars and radio control cars FTA #6100 is on display at the St Louis Transportation Museum. 

The first units were for the CNO&TP;

 FTAís number 6100-6105, FTBís #6150-6155 built in 1941.

 Southern FTAís were number 4100-4127, FTBís 4300-4319 built between 1943-45. NO&NE FTAís were 6800-6803, FTBís 6825-6828 built in 1942.


    In 1945 A&EC received F2aís #400 & 401. AGS received #6700 & 6701 in 1946 equipped with steam generators for passenger service. 6701 was rebuilt to F7 standard, retired and traded in 1972 for a GP38-2.


    The F3 played an important role in both freight and passenger service. The F3ís with steam generators were originally painted in the White and Green (Pelican) scheme until 1950 when simplified to the Green and Light Gray. The freight remained black until the arrival of the F7ís in 1949 when all units received the Green and Light Gray from that time on until 1958 when black returned.

Southern F3A numbers 4128-4200 arrived between 1946 thru 1949. Units 4130-4135, 4138-4140, 4144, & 4145 all equipped with steam generators.

CNO&TP F3B numbers 6156-6159 arrived in 1947.

AGS F3A numbers 6702-6713 arrived between 1946-47. Units 6704-6708 all equipped with steam generators.

AGS F3B numbers 6750-6755 arrived between 1946-47.

NO&NE F3A numbers 6804-6806 arrived in 1947.

NO&NE F3B number 6829 arrived in 1947.

   Most all F3ís were rebuilt to F7 standards. The F3Aís were retired between 1969-1973, the F3Bís were retired by 1968.


    The F7ís started to arrive in mid 1949, with them came the new standard Green and Light Gray paint scheme for all Southern units both freight and passenger, road and yard.  

Southern F7A numbers 4207-4269

Southern F7B numbers 4385-4429

CNO&TP F7A numbers 6114-6120 Unit 6119 equipped with steam generator.

CNO&TP F7B numbers 6160-6183 Units 6174, 6178, 6180, & 6182 equipped with steam generators.

AGS F7A numbers 6714-6719 Units 6715, & 6718 equipped with steam generators.

AGS F7B numbers 6756-6758

   The F7Aís were retired between 1969 thru 1974, all F7Bís were retired in 1969.


    The FP7ís arrived in 1950, all equipped with steam generators and used in both freight and passenger service. Delivered in Green and changed to Black beginning in 1958. CNO&TP numbers 6130-6149.

    All units retired in 1979 except 6138, 6141, 6143, & 6147 remained for special trains and repainted Green, with #6133 donated to the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer NC.  The 6138 & 6141 are now in Dinner Train service in Kentucky, numbers 6143 & 6147 are in Stone Mountain service GA after service for the New Georgia Railroad ended.

     In February of 1941 Southern and the CNO&TP received 3 A-B sets of the DL109A and DL110B. SOU units were #2904A & 2954B, and the CNO&TP units were #6400-6401A and 6425-6426B. These units were placed in service on the Ponce De Leon between Cincinnati and Chattanooga. Delivered in the ďPelican SchemeĒ they were later changed to the Standard Green & Light Gray. The DL110b were the only B units built by Alco. All three sets were traded back to Alco in 1953 for the new PA3ís.


     In 1953 NO&NE received six PA3ís # 6900-6905. These units were placed in service on the Bristol line and maintained in Chattanooga. In the late 1950ís they were reassigned to the Ponce De Leon between Atlanta and Jacksonville were they remained until retired in the early 60ís.

    Alco switcherís were never a major player for the Southern, but they did own a few when dieselization of yard engines started in 1940. They later tried again when the S2 and S4 models came out along with a few Baldwin units. EMD proved to be the better suited locomotives for the job. The S1 models saw light yard work and mostly branch-lineís system wide. The South Georgia and Florida Lines in and around Perry Florida were no exception.
