Coal with N&W and SOU power  Contributor's Pick!       
A coal train bound for the Norfolk pier has three units-including a GP 35 of all things-and 223 cars. NS would take coal trains out of the mining districts, run them to Crewe, and combine them into monster loaded trains for the pier. Im told they ran 300 car empty trains back to Crewe, but did not see one.
