SAL 0-4-0T 1003 is in Andalusia, AL in poor condition. It also used to run in the streets of Columbus, GA.

SAL 0-4-0 tank engine #1001 is located at Holiday Park, Ft. Lauderdale.From what I have read, this engine was used around Columbus, GA. A picture of it can be found at , Florida Steam section. It is part of the playground and in good condition.

Ex SAL Decapods are preserved and displayed in Gainesville and Winder, GA, as Gainesville Midland locomotives. GM 209 (ex SAL 533) is in Gainesville and GM 208 (ex SAL 530) is in Winder.

An ex-SAL Russian Decapod is located at the NC state RR museum in Spencer, NC. It is SAL 544, to MD&S 544 to GM 206. All three of these locomotives were in use on the Gainesville Midland until 1959.

I think Spencer Museum has an old decapod (ex-Russian). I will check in my Spencer Book (TLC) and reply.
