I recently purchased Larry Goolsby's book; it is an excellent resource for information and photos about the South Wind which passed through my hometown of Bainbridge, Georgia. Other resources are a recent edition of Lines South that covered the Savannah operations and a video from Green Frog Productions (Volume 3: Passenger Trains of the '60's - Trains of Birmingham). SCL and ACL timetables also contain consist information.

My new book, Atlantic Coast Line Passenger Service - The Postwar Years, has some information on the South Wind, including several photos, general information on the train's operation over the ACL, an actual consist, etc. The book is $25 plus $3 s/h from the Society, P. O. Box 325, Valrico, FL 33595-0325.
