Is the "back story" still known surrounding the purchase of ACL and B&LE tenders, and C&O 0-8-0 switchers? 

By "back story," I mean not the simple fact that the purchases were made, but rather the stories behind the purchases. Who found the pieces? What examinations were made, and by whom, and do their reports still exist? Who suggested the purchases, and how far up the food chain did the approval process progress? What prices were paid, and was there dickering over the prices? How were the various pieces of equipment moved to Roanoke? What modifications were suggested, and what modifications were actually made? 

This topic might make an interesting article... if the underlying documentation still exists.
