Attached is the back of a Palace Hotel card circa mid-1880s showing fares.  The fare from Roanoke to Waverly is $9.60 but if someone went to stations beyond, the fare was lower.  For example, Norfolk was $8.65.  Does anyone have thoughts about why this anomaly existed?  I suppose more than one person purchased a ticket for Wakefield and then de-trained at Waverly.

Best wishes to all for Thanksgiving,
