If I remember my railroad books correctly I believe that was discussed in the book, “The Men Who Loved Railroads”.  I’ve have to dig it out to check.

Subject: "Palace Coup" Which Ousted Pevler

Another railroad list today carried a post which mentioned the N&W's "palace coup of 1970," which ousted Pevler and brought Fishwick back from the D&H to Roanoke as President of the railroad.  The intimation was that the coup occurred when Pevler let it be known  he was recommending someone from outside the N&W as his replacement in the president's chair.

What were the details, and who were the players?  And whom did Pevler intent to recommend?
