The locomotives are in the Mechanical Department’s locomotive service tracks area at Cherokee Yard. In this photograph are GE 44-ton switch engines SLSF 8 and, coupled to its rear, SLSF 7. Number 7 is sitting on non-powered shop trucks. Its normal trucks and traction motors are being rebuilt in the shop.
