Atlanta & St. Andrews Bay

The 82-mile Atlanta & St. Andrews Bay, categorized as a Class I from 1947 until the mid-’50s, owned just one F unit, F3A 1501. The “Bay Line” bought it to power the daily passenger train between Dothan, Ala., and Panama City, Fla., where it is picured in the late 1940s. When the unit entered service in 1947, the road became the second Class I (after Texas Mexican) to become all-diesel.
