More Heavy Metal


Here is one of the drive wheels on one of the largest steam locomotives I have seen. It’s the Norfolk and Western Class A Locomotive #1218 and it’s on display at the Virginia Museum of Transportation in Roanoke, Virginia. The drive wheel is 70 inches (almost six feet!) in diameter and the locomotive weighs 573,000 pounds.
