Actually, it does.

Pre-1982, I don't recall seeing any Southern-painted locomotives with 'SOU' sublettering. It wasn't necessary - only non-SOU locomotives painted in SOU colors got them.

The days are getting longer - it shouldn't be too long until you can shoot the same schedules in sun.

I've shot in the cab of similar-sized locomotives with my 18-200, and 18mm can be tight.
