  Photo N&W GP-18 i919 is at Portsmouth, OH, on June 26, 1967. This unit, part of N&W's original GP-18 order, was delivered to the railroad in December 1959. It is shown here repainted in the blue scheme with the half-moon heralds. Note the lack of herald end plates (Thomas D. Dressler photo)
  Photo N&W GP-18 2708, shown in Bellevue, OH on September 3, 1966. The front Mars light and lack of dynamic brakes clearly identify this unit's NKP heritage. Also note the spark arrestors and the rerail frog mounted about the rear truck. (Thomas D. Dressler photo)

  Photo Crews of N&W trains RH-88 and HR-52 turn back units at Ashby, VA on July 18, 1983. During tight motive power periods it was not uncommon to find power taken off northbound trains and returned to Roanoke at Ashby. Located at the top of the climb away from the Shenandoah River, trains could manage with fewer units to Shenandoah Junction. Here additional gtraffic was set off for Chessie System. The remaining power could then handle the balance to Conrail at Hagerstown. The grips are down as the crews prepare to move SD45 1721, the trailing uint on RH-88, to the head end of HR-52 in the siding (Photo by Mason Y. Cooper)
