Following from RailPictures.Net

All 20 heritage units are gathered around the turntable at the Spencer Roundhouse, with 1030 holding down the table. For more information, visit http://www.nscorp.com/

Folks- they are lined up by families. On the left- the IT, WAB, VGN and NKP were merged into the N&W. Going clickwise- the PRR and NYC formed the PC, which then with the Erie, Lackawanna, CNJ, RDG, LV (even kept the anthracite roads together), and Monongehela into Conrail. And the original NS, INT, CG, S&A into the Southern. A very knowledgeable and historic lineup. Bravo, NS!

Finally, I think the RDG and LV units should have been swapped.
