Virginian No. 47
Author: rattenne

Not sure if I posted this before or not but this is my only photo of a Virginian Fairbanks-Morse disel. The slide was marked Aug 31, 1957 at Roanoke VA.

At first glance I thought it was n H24-66 but the trucks do not appear to be CC trucks but BB trucks so I' wondering if this is a H15-44 or H16-44 unit?

That will be a nifty paint scheme on the NS Heritage Unit.

Sure would--always liked that bumblebee scheme, and the FMs were sharp. Thanks for the neat portrait! Kurt.

KR- I always like a good F-M and I didn't get to see much of the Vgn after my 1954 Easter trip. Thank you. wag216
