This is an image I took when I was out at the Strasburg Railroad in Pennsylvania  to see the reunion of 2 Norfolk & Western locomotives, 611 and this one 475.  475 is unique in it's own way, it is a Class M 4-8-0 wheel arrangement called a Mastodon built in 1906.  It is the only other operating N&W locomotive today.  I photographed it at Picnic Grove on the line as it passed me and it shows off it's wheel arrangement pretty well.
