Here's a 10 pack with some really neat variety - I hope you enjoy!
First up, an unfortunately cluttered shot of Toledo, Angola & Western Railway Company 100, a 2-8-2 built by ALCo at their Schenectady, New York shop in April of 1924.
A much more mundane shot of a Chevrolet 3500 for CSX, who are headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida.
Here we have Columbus & Southern Ohio Electric 3, an 0-4-0 built by the Vulcan Iron Works in September 1946.
This one is pretty unusual (second I've seen other than photos) as it is what is known as a "fireless cooker", as in, it does not burn any type of fuel. It would've instead been used at locations that had large industrial boilers, from which a hose would be ran from and connected to the locomotive's tank, therefore "charging" the loco with steam. It of course would be confined to switching chores near the boiler.
The very nicely cosmetically restored Chesapeake & Ohio 2700, a 2-8-4 (known as a "Kanawha" class on the C&O). 2700 was built by ALCo at their Schenectady, New York facility in 1943.
What I believe to be the oldest locomotive I've photographed, Norfolk & Western 7, a 2-8-0 built by N&W's very own shops in Roanoke, Virginia in January 1897.
Note how you can see all the bolts on the boiler - this would originally have been covered by a smooth casing (like 2700 above), but between the boiler and the casing was insulation, asbestos insulation to be exact, which of course was standard practice until the dangers of the substance were known. It has been removed at some point, along with the casing. It is possible to reattach the removed casing, but from what I understand, custom spacers have to be made, plus repairing/replacing any damaged casing components. This of course costs money and requires a lot of time and effort, so many display locos are in such condition. A shame really.
A couple shots of the only end-cab switcher I've been able to properly photograph.
An EMD SW1000 built in December 1969, it now resides at the Virginia Museum of Transportation (VMT) in Roanoke as RNRH 1, but was built as American Electric Power AEPX 1.
One of the famed "Lost Engines of Roanoke", here we have Norfolk & Western 1151, a 4-8-0 built by N&W at their Roanoke shops in June 1911. Currently at the VMT. There is a member of the same class, the "M" class, operational on the Strasburg Railroad.
The so-called "Lost Engines" were a group of a few locomotives (diesel and steam) that sat at a scrapyard in Roanoke for decades, surviving long enough to be saved. I think one of the diesels is cosmetically restored at the VMT - a Chesapeake Western Baldwin, I believe.
Here we have an 0-6-0 tank locomotive, built by Baldwin in September 1923 as The Utah Copper Company 5. Eventually being owned by E.J. Lavino & Company as their 34, it now resides at the VMT.
And a Chevrolet 3500 for Norfolk Southern, who're headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.
Thanks for looking, and have a great upcoming week!
