Norfolk & Western's "The Tennessean"
Title:  Norfolk & Western's "The Tennessean"
Description:  Train #45 "The Tennessean" is readied for departure. This train connected with a Pennsylvania train of the same name, then ran Southern to N&W and back to Southern. The Roanoke police officer sitting under the stairs was there to watch the crossing, especially for upscale Hotel Roanoke guests. Assuming the train's on time, it's about 1:30 PM. #45 left Washington DC at 8:00 am that morning and will arrive at Memphis at 7:15 am the next day. Is that a 1940 Chrysler crossing the plane?
