Throwback Thursday - Georgia (Southwestern) On My Mind

GSWR 2127 is leading three other units down the hill towards Goderich Harbour on July 30, 1999.
By Peter Mumby.

From its inception in 1992 until the year 2000, Goderich Exeter Railway was part of the RailTex group of short lines.  During this time frame most of the motive power in use was identified as belonging to GEXR, although periodically units lettered for other component lines would put in an appearance.  Such was the case with today's featured locomotive, GSWR (Georgia Southwestern Railroad) number 2127.  Accompanied by GEXR 3834, 4161, and 177, the unit is descending the hill towards Goderich Harbour, where today's group of loaded salt hoppers will be picked up.
