River Street Rambler

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

I plan to visit Savannah for the Saint Patrick's Day festivities next month. During a sober minute, I'd like to find and photograph the specially painted CofG/Norfolk Southern switch engine dubbed 'The River Street Rambler'. Where does this engine reside at when it's not creeping down River Street with tank cars? Is this place fairly accesible where as I can take photographs without fear of arrest, being mugged, etc.?

Eric, this will come a bit late as today is St. Patty's day, but (someone please correct me if I am wrong) I heard the River Street Rambler was sold last year (2001) and will not be replaced with another specially painted locomotive. Seems Savannah is negotiating with NS to stop the train running down River Street in hopes of acquiring the route to be used for a restored trolley line. Maybe you found out more about the status of this project while in Savannah. If so, give us an update, please. Thanks.
