SCL Gp-30's : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

Hello all,

Wondering if anyone could tell me, and I'm sure someone will know the answer, what years did SCL run GP-30's and did any make it into the Seaboard System/Family Lines transistion. If so, were they changed into different numbers.

Thanks John

I have a color slide of GP30 #1389, in full SBD dress, taken at BPT in Richmond, Va. on 12/21/83. This is the only shot I have of a GP30 wearing SBD colors in service. On 9/1/84, I shot SCL GP30 #1329 and FLS/SBD GP30 #1355 in storage at Hamlet, NC, with many other GP30's and GP35's. Unfortunately, I did'nt make a list as we walked down the line. Hope this is of some help.
