  Photo The 30 Y3a's were delivered from ALCO during 1923 and were used on most parts of the N&W system. They were virtually identical to the earlier Y3 class, but had a boiler inspection hatch behind the water delivery pipe on the left side and pulled the larger 15,000 gallon, 20 ton coal tenders (Tom Dressler collection)
  Photo Y3a's had Duplex Type D-1 stokers (the large tubes on either side of the clam-shell type Shoemaker Vertical Automatic Firedoor) and Chambers Inside Connected Dome Throttle. The 6-ET air brake valves are on the right of the right stoker tube and the Franklin grate shaker levers are to the outside of the left tube. (N&W photo, Tom Dresselr collection)
