N&W - ACL Petersburg, Va Question

Trying to recall what type of cars were involved in a switch move
back in the 1950s at Petersburg, Va. between the N&W west bound and
east bound Pocahontas & the ACL Short Run.

The move involved switching Norfolk connection cars off N&W train #3
onto ACL train #32 and cars off of ACL train #27 onto N&W train #4.

The ACL yard crew did the switching from #3 to #32, then the N&W crew
completed the move to #4.

Thanks very much,

Herman Wilkins
