In a few instances, a station's call reflected a previous name. Montvale
on the Norfolk Division had originally been named BUford's. The call
for Montvale remained "BU". As far as "VD' for Alnwick, there had
been a tower at the east end of Bluefield yard - "RD" supposedly for
Radford Division. With the consolidation of the Norfolk, Shenandoah,
and Radford divisions into one - the Virginia Division, some thought
was given to renaming that interlocking "VD".

The "call" wasn't for a station, but to raise the dispatcher, some
roads used "DS" and some used "DI". The Chief Dispatcher
was "CQ".
