History 

Written by Eddie Douthitt

I don't know much about the history of this other than it's been in Dalton a long time. It's rumored to have at one time belonged to the President of Southern Railroad, but I have no proof one way or another. Moved 06-18-2011 to it's new location at the old Southern Freight depot where it will be restored for permanent display.
