Issue Details
Cover Title: Norfolk and Western's 4-8-0's
Cover Subtitle: The proposed Class M3
On the Cover: From the current news section of the Newsletter, Chesapeake Western Train V-94 with B23-7 R/N 4010, U23B R/N 3905, and ex-N&W GP38-AC R/N 4149 and 16 cars departs Mt. Jackson, Virginia, southbound for Harrisonburg at 11:39 AM, October 8, 1990. Today the "CW" looks nothing like the T6 powered N&W controlled shortline. Running on ex-SR track with NS power, the "CW" today resembles any other branch of the Norfolk Southern, complete with welded rail, and even on occasion, a unit grain train
