Remarks & Notes 
A fairly rare bird has lit at the engine tracks at Norton, VA this day in 1974. Alco C425 1011--one of just 17 such units on the company's roster--was built in January 1965. You're actually looking at the rear of the unit, since the long hood was designated as the front. Although the first seven units in the class were ex-Wabash, with low noses and single controls, the remaining units were built for the N&W with dual controls. The Alco's companion on the adjacent track is 1597, an SD40 built in 1966. At the time, the yard at Norton was a joint affair with the L&N. Diesel units were not serviced at Norton.
