The Powhatan Arrow

Hey Guys,

I collect 'O' scale electric trains. These are rather expensive large model trains, not toys. Anyway, I have a complete
Powhatan Arrow train set with the #611 engine. This train came with an overhead observation car. I grew up in Bluefield
during the '40s and '50s and I never recall seeing the Arrow pulling an overhead observation car. And the train passed
in front of our home twice a day in Bluefield, VA. It ran westbound at 3pm and back eastbound at 4pm. every day. Does
anybody know for sure if the Arrow ever pulled an overhead observation car? If it did then somehow I missed it, but if it
didn't then my Arrow model set is not quite as accurate as it should be. Thanks for any help with my curiosity.
