locked Southern Railway Steam black and white/color photographs


Will Kesler
 

Hi I’m new to the group and am still learning how this works but I thought I’d make a post on what I’m most interested in. Southern steam color photographs, I love seeing southern steam engines in color and I’ve already seen most that are on the internet and in books so maybe if anyone would be willing to post some here that would be very appreciated. Primary it’d be awesome to see some color shots of some Ts-1’s, Ps-4’s, or even Ms-4’s. Early Diesel action would be cool too.

Another thing I would like too add, since I’m a new member and I clearly don’t know my way around here could anyone tell me what you mainly do here? Another question I have is that are the archives present on the SRSA site including photographs and stuff or is that all located at the SRSA headquarters in Chattanooga. Keep in mind I’m new so excuse me if I’m incorrect about some things.

Welcome to SRHA.  We would love to have some of the archive materials available digitally, but that's down the road a bit for now. We are working to that end.

Frank, that’s alright. Do you happen to know of any other place where I could find Vintage Color Shots of southern railway steam?

Will,
Welcome to the group…
Have you seen the Southern Railway “in color” series of books published by Morning Sun?
Vol 1 and 2 both had some color steam in them.
Hopes this helps, Barry

Barry, yes I actually have volume 1. I was considering getting volume 2 but I didn’t know if I should get that over Classic Steam Trains in the South by Curt Tillotson Jr. I think I will get the classic steam trains because it focuses on N&W SOU L&N and some more, it does look like it contains some color shots of engines as there are two color shots of Ms-4’s. Thanks for your help though.

Something I have noticed is that there seems to be multiple Southern Railway In Color books by different people. One Volume 2 book is by one author, and another volume two is by a different author. The one with Ps-4 1380 seems to be more of one I’d want due to it having what appears to be pictures from different locations on the pages, as they include Spencer North Carolina.

Will,

You’re looking at two different series…
Southern Railway in color Vol 2
Southern Railway Power in color Vol 2

Thanks,
Barry
