Remarks & Notes 
Pacifics #210 and #212, former passenger power, sit idle in the dead line waiting for the executioner. During this era, the Virginian was on a diesel-buying binge and by 1957 all steam operations ended. Sadly, most were scapped by 1960.

These are engines that are either already scrapped, are in deadlines, or they're in severe danger of being scrapped. Not everything can be preserved.
