A friend on another railroad list posted this PowerPoint presentation back in January and I just ran across it stashed in a corner of my hard drive. It is a series of color photos taken at the 1957 NRHS Convention, which was held Labor Day weekend in Roanoke. There are a number of photos of the display put on by the Virginian that show steam, diesel, and electric power. There are shots around the Roanoke passenger station, and shots from the various excursions on that weekend -- Roanoke to Matoka, WV, and back behind a VGN electric, Roanoke to Bluefield, and the trip up the Blacksburg Branch behind M-class steam. I'm not sure of the origin of the PowerPoint (I can track it down if desired) but I'm surprised it hasn't shown up on these lists. Enjoy!
