Remarks & Notes 

N&W class Y6a #2156 sits by N&W class A #1218 each awaiting their next assignment. Built respectively in 1942 and 1943, No. 2156 will retire in 1959 after working the coal fields and move to St Louis for display at the Museum of Transportation. No. 1218 will find its way into F. Nelson Blount's Steamtown collection in Vermont in 1965 before returning to Roanoke for display at the Virginia Museum of Transportation. With either run again? Will they reunite in the distant future - time will tell!
