On a warm autumn day in October 1943, the first section of the "Kansas City - Florida Special" pulled by green-and-gold Southern Railway Ps-4 "Pacific" locomotive #1386 passes through Leeds, Alabama en route to Birmingham.  In the distance, a Central of Georgia K-class "Big Apple" locomotive has started the long ascent up to Oak Mountain Tunnel with a manifest bound for Columbus, Georgia.
