Southern Railway local from Inman Yard by interlocking tower in Atlanta, GA

While my wife was visiting her friend from nursing school in Norcross in August 1984, I took off to find some trains. Engine 2410 leads a local out of Inman Yard on its way to the Ford plant in Hapeville. At the time there was an interlocking tower that controlled much of the trackage at this strategic junction.

You can see my little blue Datsun next to the pickup truck in the parking lot for the tower. I think it was called Howell Wye Tower. I wish now I had taken a picture of it. Disk 131
