From June of 1950 to July of 2008, the Norfolk & Western No. 917 steam locomotive sat on the same spot rusting away in the Virginia Scrap Iron & Metal Company yard in Roanoke Virginia. On July 8, 2008, the locomotive was removed by crane and loaded on a flatbed trailer to be hauled to Bellville, Ohio for restoration and display. The 917 is a W2 class steam locomotive built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works of Philadelphia in 1903. All the locomotives in the yard have been saved and dispersed to various locations. Some have been cosmetically restored.
