When heavy Mikado-type steam locomotive number 6330 entered Chattanooga, Tenn., on June 17, 1953, it marked the end of the steam era on the Southern Railway. The dieselization process that had begun 14 years earlier was now complete, enabling the carrier to enjoy financial success until its identity disappeared under the Norfolk Southern Corp. umbrella on June 1, 1982... Take a look at all of the diesel models operated by the Southern between 1939 and 1982 - from the Sylvan green and aluminium grey cab units of the 1940s and 1950s, through the black and aluminium GP38-2s, GP50s, and SD40-2s that formed the backbone of the diesel fleet in the 1970s and 1980s. An exhaustive reference. Some colour, mostly B&W photos. 376pp. 1997, Withers Publishing. New Book. NOS-DSL-STR Out of Print
