The Fast Flying Virginian by markkarvon The Fast Flying Virginian by markkarvon
One of the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroads prestigious passenger trains, the Fast Flying Virginian operated daily runs between Union Station in Washington DC and Cincinnati Union Terminal. The Fast Flying Virginian operated from its inaugural run on may 11, 1889 until May 12, 1968. The train was pulled by a variety of fast and powerful locomotives but perhaps none were as beautiful as the F-19 Class Heavy Pacifics. With smokebox mounted pumps and a deck mounted headlight, the F-19 is considered amongst the prettiest locomotives ever operated by the C&O. This print features one of these beautiful machines with the Fast Flying Virginian in tow pulling out from Cincinnati Union Termial as she would have appeared sometime in the 1930s.

No problem. For national train day, I went to C.U.T. with a friend of mine. If you look at my pic, Ready to Roll 3, you can see the dome of the station.

This locomotive is so Majestic!  You should create a puzzle that has the F-19.
