Having been out of service for 8 years, Southern Railway SD40 #3170 moves its first tonnage since being rebuilt and restored into its Southern “Tuxedo” scheme. As viewed from Inman Yard’s North Tower in Atlanta, Ga., it is seen here moving a cut of cars from the class yard to the forwarding yard to become train 219.
The Kelpies tower a colossal 30 metres above the Forth & Clyde canal and form a dramatic gateway to the canal entrance on the East Coast of Scotland. Sculpted by Andy Scott, The Kelpies are a monument to horse powered heritage across Central Scotland.
