Description:  Beautiful action shot of the westbound 1937 Norfolk & Western Roanoke shops built articulated #1208. According to www.steamlocomotives.com "One of Norfolk & Western's finest designs, these articulateds featured all the latest components when introduced in the late 1930s .In addition to a high-pressure boiler, an A had a cast-steel frame and roller bearings on virtually all surfaces. The firebox had 57 sq ft of arch tubes, but no circulators or syphons. Max consumption rates per hour were 7 tons of coal burned and 116,055 lb of water evaporated. Between Williamson, WV and Portsmouth, Ohio, these engines had a tonnage rating of 13,000 tons of slow freight. Between Portsmouth and Columbus, they were rated at 5,200 tons of time freight. And they could pull passenger trains at 70 mph. R.P. Morris photo
