 Hello, all

Other than the K engines that ran between Norfolk and Richmond Broad Street, how often were K locomotives used in passenger service elsewhere on the main line?  I had the impression that J-class locomotives were used and that K engines were relegated to branch lines to Durham, Winston-Salem, Hagerstown, and elsewhere.  I have attached a picture of N&W 124 at Farmville, unknown year.

Happy holidays to all,
