R.R. Museum Acworth Ga.

Show casing several types of
locomotives of the day. These
were not the same gauge rail
tracks as the rails of today and
were used by private companys
to move their product around.
Mostly mining and timber.
The reflection in the glass is the
famous locomotive "General" of
civil war fame. I watched a video
at the museum that gave an
account of this famous run and
it was a harrowing feat by some
verry brave men.

Featured here is a setup of how these
early locomotives were built and assembled.

Below is an almost completely
assembled locomotive.
