(page 1 of 2)

Former US Army ALCO S-2 locomotive number 7100 debuted to photographers on April 6, 2002, with restored paint after a three-year rebuild. Pulling a freight train consisting of a high-side scrap metal gondola, a KCS bulkhead flatcar, and a Southern caboose, 7100 performed a number of runbys along the route of the Secret City Scenic Excursion Train.

 

Engine 7100 poses at Blair, Tennessee, site of some of the filming for the movie "October Sky".

The passenger train with engine 5308 performs a runby at milepole 1, the site of the original railyard used for sorting railcars for the Manhattan Project.
