Norfolk and Western's Powhatan Arrow

By Thomas W. Dixon Jr.

Laminated color softcover, 8.5x11, 113 glossy pages, photos throughout, drawings, charts, map.

"Here's the details of the equipment, motive power, schedules, services, and overall life of the N&W's flagship passenger train from 1946 to its discontinuance in 1969.

"Using photos, advertising art, timetables, and maps, the author not only describes the Powhatan Arrow and its services in detail, but also sets it in the context of the eras it spanned: its inauguration in 1946; its re-equipping in 1949; its downgrading in 1958; and train-off in 1969."
