If I  remember my railroad books correctly I believe that was discussed in

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?
