Steam train with 3 red cars attached


Season's Greetings

Additional Verse:

Thunder and Steam Thundering eastward through the mountains of Virginia is Norfolk and Western's elegant Powhatan Arrow, powered by a bullet-nosed J-class 4-8-4 locomotive. The Tuscan red "Streamlined Coach Train" raced daily over the 680 mountainous miles between Norfolk and Cincinnati in 16 hours. The J's were built between 1941 and 1950 at the N&W's Roanoke Shop and were considered by many to be the most advanced and powerful passenger locomotives ever constructed. Completed during an age when other railroads were abandoning steam for diesels, their state-of-the-art design was the pinnacle of steam locomotive technology. From the sleek J to the round-end tavern-observation car, the Powhatan Arrow represented one of the finest examples of streamlined steam passenger trains. May the majesty of this magnificent train add to the joy of your Christmas Season.
