Scrap Lines Behind the Diesel Shops in Russell, KY

Upon retirement, a number of C&O steamers were stored at the C&O yard behind the diesel shops at Russell, KY prior to being scrapped (Google Maps View). Fortunately, a few escaped the torch. The following locomotives remained on these scrap lines until 1975 when they were moved to the B&O Railroad Museum (unless otherwise noted).
