In the Durham District K1 class locomotives Nos. 107, 112, and 113 were used
on passenger trains #35 and #36 between Lynchburg and Durham, NC. The were
not shrouded. This ended in August of 1954 with Nos. 107 and 112 when
passenger service was discontinued. I do not know if they stayed in the Durham
District or were moved elsewhere. These locomotives were not retired until
1958, although I am not sure about this date.

In the VT Data base there are several pictures of 107 and 113, but the
pictures of 107 were when it was temporarily converted into an oil burning
locomotive in the late 1946. I believe there are also pictures in the N&WHS

I have been interested in the doing the same thing to recreate No. 107 on
train No. 35. I'll be interested in hearing from you about your progress if
you decide to do this.

Were any of the N&W K's in service in 1953 or so that were NOT streamlined?
I am thinking of getting one of the Spectrum 4-8-2 units and kit-bashing it
to match N&W but need to know if it would be anywhere near historically
