Business travels took me recently to Roanoke, Virginia. Of course, Roanoke was the corporate headquarters for the Norfolk & Western Railway. I stayed at the Hotel Roanoke, the hotel formerly owned by the N&W, across the street from the depot and shop complex. More on my visit to Roanoke later, but here are some shots of the depot. The building was originally a classically-styled structure. After World War II, the N&W hired Raymond Loewy to re-style the interior and exterior of the station. The effect is a stunning mid-century modern effect. Though the depot later fell into disrepair, and the concourse over the tracks was demolished, the structure remains. It currently houses the fantastic O. Winston Link Museum, and a visitor center for Roanoke.
