In the 1980's Seaboard System and early CSX used GE B30-7's on there intermodal trains. These locomotives were given a nickname of TOTE Boats, a L&N term for Trailer on Train Express.
On Friday October 14, 1988 at 2:40 pm, southbound R-121 crossing the Tennessee River in Decatur, Alabama. This former L&N main crossed Southern's Chattanooga to Memphis line. here at River Junction.
David Mitchell Forrest Sharpe I remember when this was a swing span bridge and watched its conversion to a lift bridge. Between CSX,NS and the river traffic, it gets a good workout round the clock
