On the cover: The small villages and towns that populate the "low country" such as Adams Height are serviced by the Southern Rwy ten-wheeler #1012 (Bachmann). The Grand Strand Western operates the old restored Baldwin 4-6-0, which makes the twice-daily local run and also delivers and picks up small loads for area merchants. Meanwhile, Pennsy #6798, (BLI) an M1a 4-8-2 “Mountain” type, rumbles past on the “up country” line, hauling coal loads to the power plant on the outskirts of Jackson City. You’ll find all of this and more on page 26.
