Locked Need SOU/R&D engine photo
I’m researching the “big” engine that Southern operated on the Asheville & Craggy Mtn RR where I volunteer. The entire branch still exists; we run that last 3.5 miles and NS switches 1 customer on the rest of the line.
ICC val report lists SOU 3325 on the line in 1916. Prince’s book says that class was renumbered in 1910-12 by adding 2000 to the number, then shows all previous numbers and owners. It’s a real shot in the dark to get a photo of that engine wearing any number. It was part of the 3323-3327, 3333 group so any pic from these or predecessors would be great. Here’s the lineage of 3325:
Was SOU 1325
Was SOU 602
Was Richmond & Danville 302
Was R&D 5
Built 1880 at Altoona Shops, sold 3-1925 to A&CM as 3325 but was shown as leased by SOU in 1916 report. There is no scrapping date. I found a poor photo of 3333 in a scrap line on the Southern Railfan web site.

Probably too old for me but I'll check
