Thank you, Rick and Jim.  The information is appreciated.  I am enjoying
teaching my grandsons how the trains were actually made up and handed off
between railroads.  Regrettably, MTH "O"-scale in many cases does not have
matching cars (one configuration of sleeper, etc.), but they enjoy it all
the same.

Early 1950's photo of the Pocahontas in Petersburg, VA with the Washington
coach on the rear. It is a class Pj.  Ahead of the coach is the
Chicago-Norfolk sleeper and heavyweight 10section-lounge car.  Several years
ago there was anticle in The Arrow on the short run trains which connected
N&W to Richmond.  The run was on ACL tracks but N&W power to Richmond.  The
N&W locomotives assigned to this were equiped with ACL automatic train
control apparatus. 


I have a duplicate slide of a K2 pulling a train on ACL.  There is a Pm
coach in the consist which I think is the Washington coach.
