I grew up in Roanoke in a house overlooking Wasena Park..Much to my delight across the park on the banks of the Roanoke River was the Virginian Hump and Yard ...Nearest to my street was a N&W Branch line .On the black and white N&W Calendar for January this year is a picture of an EX C&0 class S1a 0-8-0 Switcher Number 257 coming under the Wasena Bridge ..(This may be a dumb Question but I have to ask).. Where did that Branch line enter and leave the N&W Yards ? As a kid we explored that Branch even rode in the Cab of one of the Engines but we only could explore so far...After all these years ..Just thought I'd Ask ...Thanks Ken Tanner, Former Roanoker
