Here is a great clip of the railroad when it was steam:

I still miss the steam train sounds throughout the park...

Great link... I also noticed they had an old video on the "New Georgia Railroad" hosted by Lewis Grizzard.

I'm not going to lie: That video is sad to watch, especially after we were at Dollywood just a few weeks ago. The sounds of a steam train add so much to the park.

I loved the steam train also. The best sight in the park was the first run in the morning where steam was blowing from the sides as it approached the Rabun Gap station. :(

The videos below aren't the best, but they are the best I can do on a slim budget (e.g. cell phone) and short notice. I went to the park yesterday to process my passes and get a quickie in before the heat kicked in and the crowds got big. 8-)

Great videos, Dogbert! Thanks for sharing...

I will have to say...that like others on here, I do miss the sight and sounds of real steam. It just isn't the same without it in the park.

Any update on the locomotives?

Several have posted that the "General" broke down during Fright Fest and that the park had already pulled parts from the "Texas" to keep the "General" running...implying that both locomotives were having issues.

Hello everyone. I'm Jake, and I just joined this community, and I am (mostly was) a fan of the SFOG Railroad. Ah, how I remember the sights and sounds of the (steam) Texas pulling into Rabun Gap every morning! I will be heading to the park this weekend and I will check out the "damage" of the railroad this season.

Jake, welcome to the Boards! Always good to have a fellow SFoG Railroad fan here.

How was your trip this past weekend? ...how was the railroad?
