Have many fond memories of playing on allover the locomotive as a young boy, before she was rebuild and put back in working order. Even got to ride in the cab on one of the first run she made out of the shops, while my dad took pictures of her.

She needs a new boiler if she wants to run again. Also, the work on 290 is nearing completion for operation. Rebuilding with this Pacific went underway since 1994, and she is expected to be back in steam by the end of 2011 or early 2012.

Actually, S&A 750 was the FIRST excursion engine on the dieselized Southern. The Southern actually allowed a few trips in the Atlanta area with 750 BEFORE the 4501 left the K&T.

750 was the second steam locomotive to run on for the Southern RR excursions starting in 1964. From 1970-75 she ran many doubleheaded excursions with Southern 722. In 1975 she was sidelined for a complete overhaul. However, the larger power got the most attention and work went slowly. Finally she returned to the rails in 1983 and finished probably forever in 1988.

When I went to work for the New Georgia RR in 1990 they had already retired 750. This was done due to severe leakage in the firebox. While the running gear was severely worn, the almost paper thin crown sheet was a killer. A section of the crown sheet had been cut out of the firebox and in some places the thickness was down to around 3/16th of an inch around the staybolt holes. I remember my first trip behind 750 was on the Georgia Peach Special in 1969 which was the doubleheader with Southern RR 630 to Fort Valley, GA.  She was a beautiful locomotive, easy to fire, strong for an engine her size, and loud at the stack. May she rest in peace.

750 last ran in Feb 1993 on the New Georgia railroad. I don't think 750 will ever steam again. They riun her too much and wore her out!!

S&A 750 is NOT OPERATIONAL. The engine is on display in Duluth GA at the Southeastern RR Museum. According to the caretakers there...the engine would need extensive boiler/firebox refurbishing and running gear overhaul to be operational. Don't look for this to happen in the future.
