Empire Coke 1 and 2 - Calera, AL

There's the Dreyfuss Hudson and the Alco PA; and then at the other end of the spectrum are homely Empire Coke 1 and 2, four-wheel electric switchers built by General Electric in 1903 and 1905. They saw regular use for nearly a century and are now stored at the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum in Calera, Alabama.
