Arrow History

In the 1850s, Big Lick became a stop on the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad (V&T) which linked Lynchburg with Bristol on the Virginia-Tennessee border.
After the American Civil War (1861–1865), William Mahone, a civil engineer and hero of the Battle of the Crater, was the driving force in the linkage of 3 railroads, including the V&T, across the southern tier of Virginia to form the Atlantic, Mississippi & Ohio Railroad (AM&O), a new line extending from Norfolk to Bristol, Virginia in 1870. However, the Financial Panic of 1873 wrecked the AM&O's finances. After several years of operating under receiverships, Mahone's role as a railroad builder ended in 1881 when northern financial interests took control. At the foreclosure auction, the AM&O was purchased by E.W. Clark & Co., a private banking firm in Philadelphia which controlled the Shenandoah Valley Railroad then under construction up the valley from Hagerstown, Maryland. The AM&O was renamed Norfolk and Western Railway (N&W).
Frederick J. Kimball, a civil engineer and partner in the Clark firm, headed the new line and the new Shenandoah Valley Railroad. For the junction for the Shenandoah Valley and the Norfolk and Western roads, Kimball and his board of directors selected the small Virginia village called Big Lick, on the Roanoke River. Although the grateful citizens offered to rename their town "Kimball", at his suggestion, they agreed to name it Roanoke after the river. As the N&W brought people and jobs, the Town of Roanoke quickly became an independent city in 1884. In fact, Roanoke became a city so quickly that it earned the nickname "Magic City".
Kimball's interest in geology was instrumental in the development of the Pocahontas coalfields in western Virginia and West Virginia. He pushed N&W lines through the wilds of West Virginia, north to Columbus, Ohio and Cincinnati, Ohio, and south to Durham, North Carolina and Winston-Salem, North Carolina. This gave the railroad the route structure it was to use for more than 60 years.
The Virginian Railway (VGN), an engineering marvel of its day, was conceived and built by William Nelson Page and Henry Huttleston Rogers. Following the Roanoke River, the VGN was built through the City of Roanoke early in the twentieth century. It merged with the N&W in 1959.
The opening of the coalfields made N&W prosperous and Pocahontas bituminous coal world-famous. Transported by the N&W and neighboring Virginian Railway (VGN), local coal fueled half the world's navies. Today it stokes steel mills and power plants all over the globe.
The Norfolk & Western was famous for manufacturing steam locomotives in-house. It was N&W's Roanoke Shops that made the company known industry-wide for its excellence in steam power. The Roanoke Shops, with its workforce of thousands, is where the famed classes A, J, and Y6 locomotives were designed, built, and maintained. New steam locomotives were built there until 1953, long after diesel-electric had emerged as the motive power of choice for most North American railroads. About 1960, N&W was the last major railroad in the United States to convert from steam to diesel power.
The presence of the railroad also made Roanoke attractive to manufacturers. American Viscose opened a large rayon plant in Southeast Roanoke in October 1917.[13] This plant closed in 1958, leaving 5,000 workers unemployed. When N&W converted to diesel, 2,000 railroad workers were laid off.

Roanoke shops

The Roanoke Shops of the Norfolk and Western Railway (N&W) in Roanoke, Virginia were founded in 1881 as the Roanoke Machine Works. It came under the control of the railroad in 1883. Locomotive production started in 1884 and 152 locomotives were built until production ceased at the end of 1893. All had been for the Norfolk and Western Railway; they later absorbed RMW, which then became N&W's Roanoke Shops. Production re-started in 1900 and a further 295 locomotives (and 2 re-boilerings) were manufactured until production ceased in 1953 with the final class S1a number 244. It was the last steam locomotive manufactured in the United States for domestic use.
Before 1881, the "Magic City" of Roanoke had been the sleepy farming community of Big Lick and a small stop on the Atlantic, Mississippi and Ohio Railroad (AM&O). All that changed when the owners of the Shenandoah Valley Railroad building up the valley purchased the AM&O, renamed it Norfolk and Western, and selected Big Lick as the new junction. The town grew rapidly as the new center of the combined railroads and changed its name, becoming a city in just a short time. The massive Roanoke Shops were built there and became the major employer in the Roanoke Valley for approximately 100 years.
At the Roanoke Shops, the N&W developed facilities and workers learned the skills needed to build its own steam locomotives in-house. During the 1930s, they employed over 6,000 workers, who were producing 4 steam locomotives each day, as well as 20 freight cars. Products included locomotives of all sizes, and of increasingly better technology, from switching engines to the famed streamlined class J passenger locomotives, the huge articulated classes Y5 and Y6 for low speed coal drags, and the class A for fast freight service. A total of 447 locomotives were manufactured at Roanoke during a 70 year time span.

Bah oui heureusement que tu avais ton télé car avec le mien Rolling Eyes
Je n'ai pas trouvé une photo de la tour de contrôle Question
par contre tes photos montrent des détails sympas les transfos les cuves de gaz, plein d'idées à exploiter Idea
En fait nous sommes juste allé au yard les shops j'ai fait l'erreur sont plus à l'est après le musée Embarassed




Les deux dernières sont les vues aériennes de ce que l'on a vu avec le parking sur la gauche qui domine toute la scène dans une zone NS Embarassed
je posterais des photos anciennes des rounhouses et du depot dans les années 40/50/60, plus à l'ouest il y a un immense yard de plusieurs miles de long Exclamation
