The Norfolk and Western Railway's J class was a class of 4-8-4 streamlined steam locomotives built by the railway's own Roanoke Shops located in Roanoke, Virginia from 1941 to 1950. The first batch, numbered 600 to 604, were built and delivered between October 1941 and January 1942. The 1942 unit had a booster on the trailing truck and the 1943 unit 605-610 were delivered without shrouding and lightweight side rods, due to the limitations on the use of certain materials during the war; they were classified J1. When N&W showed the War Production Board the reduced availability numbers because of this, the Board allowed the J1s to be re-fitted as Js with the lightweight rods and shrouding in 1944. The last batch, 611-613, were all rolled out between May and July 1950, marking the last steam passenger locomotives built in the United States.
