    Methinks the RF&P cars were in a New York-Richmond pool and rarely, if ever, came through to Norfolk.  Mostly the New York to Norfolk sleeper was PRR after the Budd cars were sold.
    What I do remember is an ACL coach, one of the A15 heavyweight Rocky Mount rebuilds showing up occasionally.  You know, the purple, grey and yellow things.  As I recall, ACL did a good job on them.  Gee, I wish I'd kept better records in those days!

  Pullman Pike County was a 10 Rmtte, 6 DBR sleeper built by Budd in
  1949.  Wayner's "Car Names, Numbers, and Consists" indicate that
  in 1949 Pullman built six 10 Rmtte, 6 DBR cars for New York-Richmond
  and New York-Norfolk service.  The N&W cars were Buchanan County,
  McDowell County and Sussex County.  RF&P supplied King George,
  King William and King and Queen.
