Norfolk & Western Class A #1218 at Birmingham, AL

Norfolk & Western Class A # 1218 is a 2-6-6-4 articulated locomotive. This photo was taken on October 9, 1988, as she departed Birmingham, AL with an excursion train headed for Chattanooga, TN. The huge coal fired locomotive was built during June 1942 for the war effort and spent much of her long life between the coal fields of West Virginia and the docks at Portsmouth, OH. The N & W stuck with steam power much longer than most major U S railroads. Her twelve 70 inch drivers and 300 psi boiler pressure produced a tremendous 112,500 lbs of tractive effort.
