This is a new fresh overall look at the last three decades of steam operation on the Norfolk & Western, starting with the early 1930s and leading up to the very end of steam operations in 1960.  The major important classes, including the various 2-8-8-2 Y-classes, the wonderful J class 4-8-4s, and the magnificent A class 2-6-6-4s are all covered, but the 2-6-6-2s, 2-8-0s, 4-8-0s, 0-8-0s, 4-6-2s, 4-8-4s are also covered both in the text and in the photos.  This is not a detailed mechanical or operational history but an overview of N&W's steam operation concept and how it was implemented in practice while other railroads were thinking about and then adopting diesels wholesale.
