> Subject: N&W operations stories?

> Hello,


> Does anyone know of any books or articles describing the operations of

any particular branch or turn on the N&W in steam days?

> The kind that would describe the moves actually made with track

descriptions or the reason one engine was used over another.


> What I am thing of here is more articles like the one Ed King wrote(

"Flagging Instructions / An Inside Look at Mine Train Operations")

> in 2004 Jan/Feb issue of The Arrow, Or the really terrific books written

on the operations of the Interstate RR by Hugh and Ed Wolfe.


> As a young-in (1963) who never got to see the real thing, I really enjoy

those sort of stories, articles and remembrances.


> Thanks


> Tom Lewi
