Remarks & Notes 
N&W class Y6a #2156 poses in front of the former site of the N&W/NS Roanoke Car Shop, present day Freight Car America facility. A yard crew has pulled the big gal out of her hiding place and left her unobstructed for a few minutes during a run around move to get back on the west end. Soon they'll tow her up the VMT for placement at the "N&W Big Three" event where she'll pose with sisters 611 and 1218.

As the years go by, more and more steam engines are being restored and operating therefore the old expression "steam is dead" is nothing but a false expression. Steam is strong and still ruling the rails.
