Hi Jack :

Vardo & Shomo are the same piece of real estate. N&W entered from the south & called the yard Vardo, the Pennsy entered from the north & called it Shomo.

Shomo was the name it was known by the local folks till the Pennsy went out of business & NS became the only occupant.

I have heard the yard was owned by the N&W & Pennsy rented from them. (Maybe some of the other historians will respond to your question).
