I did not make it to Saltville to see the 4-4-0 locomotive, but thanks for letting me know it is there.
It looks like I have forgotten come back here and share the photos I took at the Southeastern Railway Museum in Duluth, GA. I spent perhaps 4 or 5 hours there about 943 photos, mostly for modeling purposes down the road for myself and maybe for others who have interest in things like the Amtrak Slumbercoach. I was surprised at how much I was allowed to walk through.
In any case, I've compiled them all into a Google Drive. It should be public for anyone who has the link. I don't plan on taking it down anytime soon. Regardless, I think you should be able to download any photos you want to save off for your modeling in case it somehow disappears.

Glad Jason explained what took place. I had an article published by the Bristol Herald Courier that gave more details of the Texas duties.
Building at Grant park is gone. It is now the Safari exhibit of the zoo.
The cyclorama was restored and is now at the history center too. It is in a two story building to the left of the Texas in the picture posted earlier. The Texas and a future exhibit on the 1996 Olympics are between the main museum and the new cyclorama building.

I wonder why they didn’t return this locomotive back to the basement of the
Cyclorama building in Grant Park.

Jason is technically correct. The display was however,
designed to make
viewing the locomotive possible without entering the building.
I attach my photo from earlier this year.

Actually, it is inside the museum. You can see it from the outside.

Have you considered visiting the Texas? It is displayed behind glass on
the outside of the History Museum in Buckhead.

I am visiting Atlanta for a few days next week and on
Thursday, I am planning to make a trip for the first time to the
Southeastern Railway Museum in Duluth.
plan to see everything thats publicly open, but is there anything I should
make sure I don't miss?
If I have extra time, does anyone need any
photos or measurements of anything at the museum?
