CHW 662
Title:  CHW 662
Description:  Built by Baldwin in 1946, this unit was one of three that would dieselize the Chesapeake Western. Retired in 1964, it would call the yard of Virginia Scrap Iron & Metal Company home for at least forty years, surviving floods and the elements alike, before being donated to VMT along with other rail equipment. The Roanoke Chapter NRHS restored it back to its beautiful CHW paint scheme in 2012, proving that anything in railroad preservation is possible. Here it sits on display, coincidently alongside former CHW 10, the Alco T-6 replacement that sent it and its sisters to the scrapyards back in the 1960s.

Title:  Chesapeake Western 662
Description:  All engines had a little placard on them telling their history. This one shows its condition before the scrapyard which owned it donated it to the museum. The restoration looks wonderful!
