Currently making the move from St Louis to Roanoke, VA for a 5 year visit. This will put N&W's "Big 3" of steam in the same location for the first time in a long time. At least while the J is not out running somewhere.

Class Y 2-8-8-2 IRRC. Big engine, the Santa Fe borrowed some during the war and really liked the amount of steam the boiler produced and at least considered putting the boiler off one on a 4-8-4.

Looks like a roomy cab too. Never thought it would have 100MPH on the speedometer.

Might have 100 mph on the speedometer - but I'll betcha you won't see that touched with that engine. Like the 160 on my Lexus sedan - it is governed to 131 and even if you reprogrammed the ECS, i don't think it would make 160.
