Next trip to the archives, I'll attempt to find the proper
BV-588 (Bureau of Valuation). Equipment is listed by
number, so I can't promise it will show.
Roanoke's East End Shops made modifications to
derricks, e.g. the boom from Norfolk Southern Rwy,
#901 was transferred to a former Southern derrick and
the left-overs were scrapped. Could be they modified
the hand-cranked NKP car.
Speaking of NKP derricks -- maybe you know, maybe
you didn't, but the derrick assigned to East Wayne was the
last operating steam derrick on N&W. I do have a photo
of that one. East Wayne Shop used it to right shifted loads.
