Norfolk and Western A Class #1207 handling a circus train in Singer, Virginia back in the 1940's.

Norfolk and Western No. 1207 is a 2-6-6-4 type steam locomotive built in 1936 by the N&W's Roanoke Shops for the Norfolk and Western Railroad.

It was used for fast freight trains, but they also use it to pulled heavy coal trains on the flatter districts of the Norfolk & Western system, and reportedly even pulled heavy passenger trains at times.

In the 1940's the locomotive was seen handling a circus train.

It worked until the end of steam in 1959, and the locomotive was sadly sold for scrap.
