In 2002 Charlie Long and I hosted the NWHS Convention in Lynchburg,Va. One of the highlights of the Convention was a beautiful diorama of the Virginian Railway tugboat the W.R. Coe. The tugboat was either scratch built or kit bashed, I don’t remember which. I’m sure I photographed it but who knows where the photos are. I also have purchased photos of a N&W tugboat off of eBay. It would take me some time to find them. See what I mean about locating slides and photos? If the modeler that built the beautiful model of the Coe reads this please send a photo or photos of it. Anyone that has photos of the N&W tugboat are also encourged to send them to this list.

If somebody knows how to get in touch with John Teichmoeller, he’d probably know off the top of his head.
And if anybody develops a decent HO model of VGN’s W.R. Coe (see Arrow Nov/Dec 2005), or C&O’s Geo W. Stevens (see attached) (both of which sailed near Lambert’s Point, even if they didn’t service N&W properties), I would very much like to hear about it!

Seeing that no one else has replied to your question, I will tell you what I know. I don’t know the answer but I can reply with my experience. I grew up in the 50's and early 60’s, not very far from the Lambert’s Point yard. My father worked for a time in the car shop at Lambert’s Point and an uncle was hostler there. I never heard my father or uncle mention that N&W had any of their own boats. I know there were many commercial tug boat companies in the Norfolk area and these commercial tugs would dock and undock the colliers that came in to be loaded. I, personally, do not remember seeing any tugs with N&W markings. I could be wrong, but this is my personal experience as I remember it. I hope somebody can give a definitive answer to your question as I would also like to know for sure. I am modeling the Lambert’s Point yard into South Norfolk.

I am doing research on Lambert's Point and eventually want to model the coal pier 1954-1955 cira. I want to know what boats the Norfolk & Western owned during that time and if there were photos and specifications.
Thanks for your help and any leads.
