‘Ol Nine Locomotive
Our most well-known exhibit, Old Nine, is a restored 1912 Baldwin, 100 ton, 2-8-2, steam locomotive.
It was named for the first settlement in Waycross, GA because Old Nine was the ninth stop on the railroad laid from Savannah.
Along with the locomotive, the exhibit includes a mail/baggage, REA Express car, passenger car and caboose.
An early Waycross depot with panels outlining the railroad’s history in the region completes this exhibit.
