That was one of the points I was about to make. Also, the 4-4-2's were assigned to the Norfolk-Richmond "Cannonball" and would have needed ATC equipment to run on the ACL to and from Richmond.

Are you sure about that Gary? According to Prince, 606 the 4-4-2 left the roster in 1933, which is years before 2180 (just above it on the list) was even built.
