When did N&W stop using telegraphs?

There were 4 stations on Norfolk Terminal that continued
using telegraph at least until 1963.? These were the four
interlockings N&W absorbed in the VGN merger --
South Norfolk, Carolina, Tidewater, and Coleman.?? OS's
on the former VGN were recorded by the dispatcher
at Coleman.? Usually the phone was used to report
movements, but if an operator was leaning back in the
swivel chair with his feet on the desk, it was easier to
bang out a train report using the key than it was to?
sit up in the chair to depress the phone treadle.
