Norfolk & Western Railway 4-8-0 No. 433Posted by: on 2017-05-10 11:21:55.033
433 is currently in good condition, but could use a wash as she is covered in dust. An interesting story is, during her tenure as the Bristol switcher, she was sent as a helper with 382 and one of the other Creeper regulars for a ballast train. The trip was made famous as 433 was uncoupled in White Top and ran tender back to Abingdon. A rare feat to run an engine tender first for a 30 mile run.
