Dates:10/3/1983 - 10/3/1983
Album Info:Prior to Amtrak starting Auto Train Service, the equipment had to be moved from Beech Grove shops to Sanford, Fl. The deadhead move mainly followed the former route of the Floridian through Louisville, Nashville and Birmingham. It came through Birmingham shortly after dawn on Oct 3, 1983. I was lucky enough to get out and follow the train from Black Creek, north of Boyles yard to South Alice yard, just south of downtown Birmingham.

While shooting the Amtrak Auto Train deadhead train at Boyles, I happened to see a Western Railway of Alabama engine. It had been assigned a new number but not yet repainted, same as the SCL engine.
