Southern's "The Tennessean"
Title:  Southern's "The Tennessean"
Description:  One of Southern's three Otto Kuhler designed ALCO needle nosed cab units is in charge of train #45 "The Tennessean." This picture was during the engine change at Bristol by CKF on his trip from Princeton NJ to Sardis MS. The unit is either Cincinnati New Orleans & Texas Pacific 6401 or Southern 2904 (CNO&TP 6400 had different number boards by this time). If it was the CNO&TP DL107 it had been rebuilt into a DL109 by the time of this shot. It was either delivered 2/41 or 9/42 and was scrapped at Spencer in the Summer of 1954.
