Early top mount double check valve

A check of drawings in the NWHS Archives revealed the following Location
Numbers for drawings of double boiler delivery check valves with rear pipe
NW-D17778 (Note on drawing, "Replacing a Phillips.")
Details can be viewed by going to the following and entering the Locator
Number in the field with that designation, and search:
Clicking on the record that comes up gives the price of the drawing and a
link to Ordering Information.

These drawings are detailed enough that the N&W may have used them to
manufacture boiler delivery check valves for locomotives constructed in
Roanoke Shops and for replacement of OEM valves.

I hope this helps somewhat.
