Buzz: Artwork by Floyd County students now on display at the library. Story behind that not-so-local locomotive spotted earlier this week.

David Boylan shared this image of a set of Kansas City Southern engines passing through on Jan. 3; he was waiting at the Lindale crossing. We asked the railroad about the rare sighting. Their response: “While this is a KCS locomotive, it is not a KCS-operated train.  It is not uncommon for railroads to use one another’s locomotives under contractual agreements,which is likely the explanation for this locomotive to be in Georgia.” We liked David’s caption better: “Y’all ain’t from around here, are ya?”
