Mike Weeks asks: "When did N&W stop using telegraphs?"

That is a good question, Mike, for which I haven't seen definitive dates. It seems to have been around 1958 and may have varied by division. Telegraphy was supplanted by telephone usage for train dispatching prior to that year --again, exact dates by division are unknown.

Good evening,
