On May 25, 1985, Southern Railway 2-8-2 No. 4501 powered a one-way excursion between Alexandria and Roanoke, VA. The steam special headed south from Alexandria on the Southern main to Manassas, VA where it diverged onto the Manassas Gap Branch, now known as Norfolk Southern’s B line. The train then headed west to Riverton Junction just west of Front Royal, VA and then south on N&W’s Shenandoah Sub, now Norfolk Southern’s Roanoke District. This photo was taken during a photo runby just south of Riverton Junction on the Roanoke District. Passengers overnighted in Roanoke, and returned to Alexandria the following day behind ex-N&W Class J No. 611.
