Subject: Passenger Train names

In the late 50's and early 60's I thought there were 3 East bound trains from Cincinnati to Norfolk.
Train No. 25
Train No. 3.
Train No. 15.
West bound trains from Norfolk to Cincinnati.
Train No. 26
Train No. 4.
Train No. 16.
I remember 3 names, Powhatan Arrow, Pocahontas. and the Cavalier.
I'm sure that someone in this vast land of information can connect the names with the numbers for me.
Thank you:
Gene A. Gloucester, Va.
