Dothan district local
Title:  Dothan district local
Description:  The Dothan district local is seen at Albany GA enroute to Dothan AL with a coach being used as a spacer car due to weight restrictions over the Chattahoochee River which prohibited locomotives being operated over it couple together. The date is approximate but it should have been in the mid to late 1960's since the locomotives are in the Southern "tuxedo" scheme. Southern acquired the Central of Georgia in 1963 and began painting the CofG's locomotives in the Southern "tuxedo" style while lettering them for the CofG. In the late 1960's the paper mill in Cedar Springs underwent an expansion and the increased business resulted in trios of EMD's being used on the Dothan district. The spacer coach was also replaced at this time by spacer boxcars. For a view of the Dothan district local using EMD's and boxcars as spacers see: http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=1010597

CofG local from Albany GA to Dothan AL
Title:  CofG local from Albany GA to Dothan AL
Description:  The Southern takeover of the CofG is evident in this 1969 look at the Dothan district local using tuxedo scheme power lettered for the Central of Georgia. This is the route that used spacer cars, seen here, due to weight restrictions over the Chattahoochee River trestle which is only 2 miles west of the location where this photo was taken. The coming of the Farley Nuclear plant near Columbia and the heavy loads destined to it would make a new trestle necessary and in a few years after this picture was taken it would be in place and would end the need for the spacer cars.
