    Leonard,

    Here's another Studebaker in a Virginia museum. It's in the Ft. Eustis Transportation Museum in Newport News. If you haven't visited this one, it's a great collection of military vehicles (land, sea and air) from Revolutionary times to the present. For the frugal Studebaker drivers, admission is free.

    WOW, I really blew this one. And I knew the touring car was earlier than the 20s. I don't know why I put that in the description.

    Hello,
    First time writer, lonnnggg time reader(haha). I'm 25, I own and have been daily driving a 1964 Studebaker Commander with a 63 Hawk R2 engine transplant since 99, or high school. But I digress.
    I saw your pictures from the Roanoke Mueseum of Transportation. I gotta make a correction to the last photo with the steam locomotive as I'm partial to that railroad line(model railroader) . That is a Norfolk and Western 4-8-4 Class J locomotive 611. That engine was a mainstream engine and later an excursion engine before Norfolk Southern pulled the excursion program in the early eighties(Although they still roll the engine around the grounds so the Timken bearings won't seize). That beauty in the photo was designed and assembled by the Roanoke Shops in-house to pull their passenger trains. The engine Loewy designed was the Pennsylvania S-1 duplexes (6-4-4-6), T-1 duplexes (4-4-4-4), Q-1 duplexes(4-6-4-4), and Q-2 duplexes (4-4-6-4). Pennsylvania did look to the N&W for building the duplexes as well as use the N&W for training their staff. Nonetheless, the Norfolk and Western prided themselves on the Class J for its speed, tractive effort, and that they were built for incredibly smooth operation. Here's is a link to some photos of the Loewy engines. Just scroll down until you see the Pennsylvania section on duplexes. [8D]
