Remarks & Notes 
Devastating flood waters in November of 1985, brought destruction to the Roanoke Transportation Museum, then located in Wasena Park. The force of the water pushed C&O H-8 Allegheny, 1604 under the Main Street bridge. The parallel section of track to the right of 1604 is where N&W 1218 was displayed for many years. Fortunately 1218 had been moved out of the museum several months before the flood to be overhauled for excursion service.
