Stranger in a Strange Land

May 24, 2010

Cotton Belt GP40 7601 seemingly out of place surrounded by Seaboard Coast Line locomotives.

Southern Pacific locomotives could be found just about anywhere in the U.S. due to pool power agreements with its interchange partner railroads.

This February 1978 slide of SSW 7601 isn’t labeled with a location.  All of the SCL power suggest it’s somewhere on the SCL system, placing the Cotton Belt unit somewhere between Richmond, VA and Tallahassee, FL.
