Remarks & Notes 
Me and ole #11 in a siding out on N&W's main north of Elkton waiting on clearance to head back to Harrisonburg with our morning loads in this late winter shot. This portion of double track is no longer there and when it was removed, CW had to proceed further north to NW's (now NS) yard in Shenandoah to pick up their daily loads. I was told it was removed to save "cost/taxes" even if it meant the trains and crew traveled further and were on the main longer than necessary. #11 was retired in the early eighty's and was moved around from place to place eventually ending up in a scrap yard in Roanoke, Va. She has since been restored to operating condition by the local chapter of the NRHS in her original livery of N&W #41 and serves as a switcher and pulls short excursions for Virginia Transportation museum in Roanoke ,VA.

Solely the CW Past and Present. July 5, 1895 CW moved its first load of freight and although its existence is merely on paper today, its roots run deep. 124 years and still moving freight. The CW operates as a subsidiary of Norfolk Southern.
