This locomotive had the following characteristics:
The 1684 was built by Alco in Pittsburgh in 1904. This class A-7 0-6-0 switcher was referenced as working the north end of Pomona Yard in 1943. It is not clear if it was an A&Y rental or remained lettered for Southern as it switched in Pomona. I have not uncovered any further evidence than the Southern-A&Y correspondence from 1943.
According to R.E. Prince's roster, the 1684 was retired in December, 1946.
