Event Details:

In May 1954, Baldwin built a 4,500-horsepower steam turbine-electric locomotive for freight service on the Norfolk & Western Railway. It was nicknamed the “Jawn Henry” after the legend of John Henry, a rock driller who famously raced against a steam drill and won – only to die immediately after. The locomotive was retired from the Norfolk & Western Railway roster on January 4, 1958.

Location: Isle of Wight County Museum, 103 Main Street, Smithfield, VA, 23430
