That same photo is on page 150 of August Thieme’s book  “The Norfolk & Western … As I Knew It !”


He identifies the location as Richlands, VA, and the locomotive is Class G-1 #6 with an empty livestock train headed for Blackford on the Honaker Branch. The date is August 20, 1950.

Good morning:

Attached is page 27 from RAILROAD MAGAZINE, July 1954.  Can anyone identify the depot shown in the upper photograph?

Best wishes and I hope everyone stays safe as Hurricane Florence passes,
