The Norfolk & Western ... as I knew it!

by August A. Thieme.

Hard cover w/dust jacket, 11X14" oversize format, 175+ pages, 150+ B&W action views of N&W steam power.

"From distinguished rail photographer August A. Thieme, this large format volume features over 150 photos, more than 140 of them never before published, of N&W steam trains in operation from Norfolk, VA to Bluefield, WV during the 40's and 50's.

"Coverage of the Abingdon and Blacksburg Branches, the Shenandoah Division from Roanoke to Shenandoah and industrial sites along the main line are also a part of this wonderful new tribute to "America's last steam railroad."

"See the A, J. and Y Class locomotives at their peak... plus numerous other classes of steam power operated daily by the N&W."
