Remarks & Notes 
Photographer: -Norman Blackwood- from the original Kodachrome 35mm slide. This is one of three N&W Y6 class engines (one Y6a and two Y6b's) that languished into the mid 1970's in Roanoke. It is one of roughly a handful of post steam era scrapings that took place that almost now seem unthinkable. But, in the summer of 1967 this Y6b was just waiting for the inevitable.

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.
