Group Description

Since 1969, the Mississippi Great Southern Chapter of the National Railroad Historical Society (Chapter 108) has existed to give it's members opportunities to grow in their interest in railroading.

Whether it be gathering and preserving railroad historical data, photography, model building or just enjoying hearing the stories of the by-gone days of the railroad, there is something for everyone.

Based in Hattiesburg, Mississippi the MGSC offers fellowship, education, a historical library and outings to help preserve this important part of Mississippi History.

This Yahoo Group will serve as a major source of communication between members of the Mississippi Great Southern Chapter of the National Railroad Historical Society.

On a quiet Sunday morning (4/17/2011) I found NS 5213 resting between assignments at the yard in Hattiesburg, MS. This engine is a GP38-2 high hood model that was built new for the Southern Railway in Jan. 1977 as SOU 5213. This unit has been equipted by NS to also operate as a remote control unit.
The spotting feature for RC units is 2 small wire antennas on each side above the cab windows and 2 strobe lights that blink when the unit is remotely operated as a warning that this engine has no crew on board.
