L&N engine 427 at Tunnel Hill, GA in 1977

Engine 427 has just brought the local into Tunnel Hill in July 1977. Its kinda hard to photograph a gray locomotive on a gray day and have a standout picture. You can see the tunnel in the background that goes through Chetoogeta Mountain. The original tunnel was completed in October 1849. The current tunnel used by CSX was completed in 1928. Disk 131
