Remarks & Notes 
Photographer- Unknown- from my personal collection. 35mm Kodachrome original slide. Frank Collins, with his trademark cigarette, turns on the air operated bell on N&W 'J' Class 611 as she prepares to leave Simpson Yard in Jacksonville, FL enroute for a round trip to Valdosta, GA. This was the second such trip of the weekend, with two more scheduled for the following weekend. Frank Collins started on N&W as a fireman in 1947. He made engineer in November 1954, he operated Class 'J's' regularly on the Radford Division from 1954 until 1958. In 1969 he was promoted to Division Road Foreman of engines on the Scioto, Pittsburgh, Muncie, and Radford Divisions and in 1970 the Norfolk Division.
