During the steam era, a total of 128 locomo-tives saw service on the Clinchfield, ranging from the 39-ton 4-4-0 to the 500-ton Chal-lenger. This pictorial history begins with the Carolina, Clinchfleld & Ohio Railway Loco-motive Roster (nine pages), complete with number, builder, date, etc. Remarks such as "retired" and "scrapped" are noted along with other pertinent information. The final two pages contain a "Locomotive Engineers Se-niority List for 1947," which gives dates em-ployed and promoted.
Filling the pages between are more than 100 photographs of great variety, including a sec-tion of photos taken by "Rail Photographer Extraordinaire," Floyd A. Bruner of Marion, N.C. There are also many early photographs, like the first passenger train to Altapass in 1906, and one of the Class E-3 (war surplus) purchased in 1947, as well as an interesting "Before and After" that shows two photos of No. I. The final series, titled Wrecks, in-cludes one of the earliest known wreck pho-tos, made in 1906, north of Forbes, North Carolina.
