Extant SAL or ACL diesel locomotives

greenspun.com : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

Is there a list of existing diesel locomotives that were one time owned by the SAL or ACL? If so, how could I acquire one. If not, does anyone out there have any information to share?

That list would be quite an undertaking! What you can start with is the roster/disposition lists in the ACL and SAL Motive Power books by Warren Calloway. From that point, you could use copies of LocoNotes II and Extra 2200 South to update even further. Many of the units are still around. Some still work for CSX, some have been rebuilt and sold to other railroads, and still more are in the industrial and shortline market. Again, this list would be quite a piece of work!
