100 Tons Of Stuff To Sell - Estate Antiques



 

100tos#1462: Railroad Steam Engine Norfolk & Western 600 Series "Class J" Photo Promotional Panorama Ad Card  - First in a new series of steam passenger locomotives: 1941. B&W photo print on front - back has information on this new aerodynamic steam locomotive. This "Railroadiana" is not a postcard.

This 9 1/2" x 4 " Glossy B&W Photo print from N&W Neg. #31434 shows the Norfolk & Western Railway Streamlined Passenger Locomotive, Class J, Type 4-8-4; Road number 600, first built in Roanoke, VA in 1941.

This railway promotional card has a black & white photo of the streamlined steam locomotive and coal tender on the glossy side and all the information you would ever want to know about this Class J 600 series on the back of the card such as: Engine 61' 2 1/2" & Tender 47' 11 3/4" for a total Length of 109' 2 1/4" with a weight - together- of 872,600 lbs; water capacity 20,000 gallons, coal capacity 35 tons and lots of other interesting information!

We recently saw a PBS show on the #611 being restored for service:
 611 | Celebration of the Norfolk & Western Class J 611 steam locomotive, owned and operated by the Virginia Museum of Transportation

The scanned card below of the 600 Series is a combined picture of both sides of the card.

Please click to enlarge photo.

Condition: this card was discovered inside of a book which kept it in very good condition except for a slight crease where it got a little crimped by the book near the front where the head of the train engine starts. There is a little "foxing" at both ends on the front and the back which is not that noticeable.

We would consider this item a specification card or an advertising card for this new run of streamlined passenger engines especially since this was the FIRST in this series. After visiting several train related sites, we could not find this exact image nor an image of the 600 as shown - we only found later versions of this engine (as in 610, 611, 613 etc) which were built after 1941. Nor did we find any photo litho railroad cards like this with the details of the locomotive series (this is not a postcard).
