CENTRAL OF GEORGIA RAILWAY 109

About Central of Georgia Railway 109

The 109 is a RS-3 built in September 1950 by the American Locomotive Company for the Central of Georgia Railway. This locomotive produces 1,600 horsepower with its V12 four stroke ALCO 244-D prime mover. It was operated on many parts of the Central of Georgia’s system until sold in December 1967. It was then sold to the East Tennessee & Western North Carolina Railroad as their number 210. It was sold to that railroad (along with locomotive 108) in order for the Southern Railway to re-acquire Southern Railway 630 and 722 for excursion service. Today, this locomotive is stored out of service at TVRM.
