    Bio / His Notes: 
    The Southern Iron & Equipment Company, a family-owned business located in Atlanta, Georgia, was a major reconditioner of locomotives in the period ca. 1900-1960. The company purchased locomotives, refurbished them, and then sold them. In addition, the company did repair and reconditioning work on behalf of various railroads.
    Scope and Content: 
    These records document the rebuilding of locomotives by the Southern Iron & Equipment Company. They consist of one folder of "Memorandum of Locomotive Numbers" and a number of 6" x 4" cards recording sales of rebuilt locomotives. The "Memorandum," 48 pages total, lists the locomotive, manufacturer, and buyer. The cards, alphabetically arranged by purchaser, record the type of locomotive, manufacturer, its number, and purchase price. The cards contain most complete information on the period ca. 1903-1924; after that, only the number of the locomotive was noted on the card. The collection also contains glass negatives.
