These first four were used on the Durham line. They were tested with 
the Dynamometer car for a few days, at least, before going into service 
on the Durham district. I have an N&W photo dated just a few days after 
delivery, with original numbers and the dynamometer car in tow near 
Webster, Virginia.  When they were renumbered in April 1956, each was 
done at Lynchburg, not Roanoke or Shenandoah.
