Hey, Harry!

The PA3s were used on the main line some but wound up on 45 and 46 between Bristol and Memphis. There are photos of them elsewhere in a couple of the Southern color books. The one you saw on 42 was unusual; as noted, they were mainly on the Streamliner.

They were a tremendous improvement over the DLs, which should give you an idea about how much better EMDs were . . .

The electrician at Bristol used to let me crank 'em up prior to their going out on 45.

Were Southern's PA-3s in captive service on the Knocksville Division ?
I saw one on 42 at Johnson City in March '57, but nowhere else.
Maybe they weren't intended to stray too far from the Chattanooga
Diesel Shop.
