Generally for the A, J and Y6's, about one locomotive per month. During WWII, it was about one per every 2-3 weeks. For the S1a's, three were built about every two months.

This new construction was done along with the other locomotives receiving classified repairs, often the same shop personnel performing both simultaneously.

What was the capacity of Roanoke Shop to build locomotives? (on a per month basis) Could they have built 2 per month, more?
