At least the 3 we have left. They all got together at the old home place for the first time in I don't know how many years. Left to Right:
N&W #2156 Class Y6a 2-8-8-2 (Roanoke, 1942)
N&W #611 Class J 4-8-4 (Roanoke, 1950)
N&W #1218 Class A 2-6-6-4 (Roanoke, 1943
Virginia Museum of Transportation, Roanoke, VA on 5/31/15.

Now that's a handsome trio!
 
I would have hidden the brake hose jumper, but still a nice scene.

Me too, but it was beyond my control. There seemed to be a huge delay on getting the Y moved from the Roanoke Locomotive Shop to the VMT grounds that day. I'm hoping they will clean, paint, and replace some of the missing parts. Then they need to stage all 3 in the correct order to recreate the old N&W shot. Just my thoughts...
