Norfolk & Western Railway Steam Locomotive #475 on the Strasburg Railroad, October 15, 2009
Photos by John D. Jones
John D. Jones visited the Strasburg Railroad in East Strasburg, Pennsylvania on rainy October 15, 2009 and took the great shots below of Norfolk & Western 4-8-0 #475.
One of N&W's M Class units, #475 was built by Baldwin in 1906. When Strasburg obtained it, the number was retained and the loco was relettered with the Strasburg
name using the N&W font style and size. In the shots below, the steam coupled with the rain makes a particularly dramatic scene, notibly in the fourth photo.
