Wandering Locomotives

Reading the article about operations in Buffalo got me wondering, did
locomotives from other railroads appear in or around Roanoke in the 1970's
either in pool power situations or "borrowed" (as the article called it)
working off mileage? Obviously there were some on other divisions. But did
they make it into the heart of the N&W/VGN? The only one I recall was a
Southern Pacific GE locomotive that I saw at the Roanoke shops in 1973. And
it looked like it had been in a wreck, so it might have been brought there
for repairs or cannibalism.
