    Is anyone in interested in the Norfolk & Western RR? You should be - it was pretty neat and one of the last bastions of steam.
    I have an extra copy of the NWHS's excellent quarterly publication - The Arrow. This is the current issue, April-May-June 2018, volume 34, issue 2. The cost of each quarterly issue is $11.95 from the society, or being a member, which I have been for about ten years. The NWHS also features the Virginian RR.
    It's 8.5" x 11", gloss paper, some color, mostly black & white, 32 pages, mint condition. Following are the topics in this issue:
    - "Outwitting the U-Boats" ..... German submarines, not GE diesels. The story of putting coal and oil shipments on the rails instead of having ships sunk at sea off our coasts during WW-2
    - "The Norfolk & Western in 1968"
    - "Freight Cars" - A study of the N&W HC-11 covered hopper
    - "Photo Feature" - Virginian RR facilities in Roanoke in late 1957
    - "Archives" - Roanoke N&W general office building fire of 1896
    - "N&W prototype you can model" - Passenger coach used as part of a commissary building
    - plus misc photos, NWHS items for sale (lots of good publications), etc. No ads.
    I'll mail it to you for $6.00. Please advise me at meteor910 if interested, Payment as usual by PayPal "friends & family"
    This is a good organization and a cheap way to see if you are interested in it. Thanks.
