The GSWR Albany turn sets out at Smithville, GA westbound preparing to run to Dawson, GA. The 510 is probably my favorite locomotive left on the property after the departure of the 2880 high hood, with the faded paint scheme, Pyle Gyralight and patched up class lights on the short hood. It is rare to see lashed up with two other engines, due to power shortages on the short line 2 engines normally run this turn. Here the 2059 and 2060 help out.

The GSWR Albany Turn shoves west on the HAL main in Arlington, GA to set out cars at the Singletary siding before heading east to Albany, GA to the NS interchange.

510 keeps finding its way to me lately. Here, the BL 510, GSWR 2059, BL 2060, and GSWR 1703 bring the Albany turn to Arlington out of Dawson.
 
510 is uncoupled and set on to BL 511 working the Lynn freight sitting on the south wye. Southbound cars are left on the Lynn main.
 
Albany turn pulls past the wye with headroom for the Lynn freight.
 
Lynn freight comes off the wye, reverses to couple on to the southbound cars
 
Albany turn with 3 engines reverses through the south wye and onto the HAL with their train.
 
The Lynn freight 510 and 511 head south with their train.
 
Albany turn makes their setout on the HAL. The 1703 is set out for the White Oak to use. Albany turn heads east to the NS interchange. White Oak picks up CSX cars to go north. The White Oak Turn normally runs on the Smithville Sub between Cuthbert and Eufaula, AL, but occasionally works Arlington and brings CSX interchange traffic north a few days a week.

Another very unusual day, the 1703 runs a worktrain south of Arlington before returning north to Cuthbert.

The White Oak Turn heads north on the state docks lead in Eufaula, AL after working Tessenderlo Kerle, returning to the mainline.

Two trains meet in Cuthbert, GA. The Albany Turn with GSWR 2059 and 1703 passes by power for the White Oak Turn (BL 511 and 2060). The Albany Turn will set out cars for the White Oak to serve customers in Cuthbert and west to Eufaula, AL.

Agreed- Lfire has shared some excellent photos.  
 
Now, to contrast with the warmth of the South... the end of last week was very snowy at the Rochester & Southern's Brooks Avenue Yard.  
 

 
There was a GP MU'd to the switcher, but it was hard to see in the snow.
 

 
Both photos in this post were taken by me Friday 12/13/2013 in Chili, NY.

A fairly new event in Albany, GA is the GSWR coming to NS for interchange on the HAL line rather than its former route down the NS Albany District through Smithville. Here 2059 and BL 510 carry the short train down the street running section of the former Central of Georgia mainline. This is the first time I've ever caught this train on camera, and was very surprised to see a GSWR lead unit rather than a Bay Line or other G&W unit.  
 
The former 3801 definitely stands out among the Dash 3 rebuilds with the bell mounted behind the cab on the conductor side by the air filter, unique air line arrangement on the engineer side, and snowplow (only one I've seen on a southern region locomotive).

A Bay Line engine has been in the NS Albany yard for a few days now. Neither the GSWR or HAL road trains picked it up, who knows where it's headed...

Great shots, bigham! I've never seen this local work before, always love some B&P action. The Blue Seal mill there brings back memories... I used to work at Moonrise Farms many years ago which had its warehouse in Randolph, NY along the WNYP mainline. Most Thursdays I would work there unloading the Blue Seal feed truck, and occasionally would get to see a train pass by, at that time it was usually the 431 and 432.  
 
Back to reality... a rare daylight run on the HAL, crossing the GSWR diamond in Arlington, GA.

The HAL train tied down in Hilton, GA with power for the CHAT lashed up from its return trip from Dothan, AL.
