Seaboard Coast Line B23-7 #5153 has pulled in front of the Yard Office          
Long-time SCL engineer John Douglas, in white jacket, is preparing to dismount his locomotive for the final time, EVER. John Douglas always managed to be at the controls of the Wadley Turn on the last Saturday before each Christmas, amazingly on the very same day that Santa Claus always managed to be on the train as well. John's (and Santa's) replacement, John Kierbow, is exiting the cab while trainmaster A. K. Conner leans out the fireman's window
