Thanks to Brooks Moses and Mike Stimpson for identifying the locomotives as GPs, and for the information about the dynamometer car.

R. Edward Cake identified these engines as GP-9's, among the first that the N&W purchased, numbered 10-13. He also identified this photograph as having been taken on the Blue Ridge grade while N&W was testing the locomotives.
