N&W Magazine article titles in the NWHS online Archives database confirm what I remember, viz., that the N&W used the same name as the PRR, i.e., TrucTrain. The article titles were: Vol. 33 No. 11, Oct. 1955, "N&W to Inaugurate Service November 14, TrucTrain" and Vol. 33 No. 12, Dec. 1955, "N&W Launches TrucTrain Service."

Subject: piggyback question

I passed the information about piggyback service in the steam era to another railfan who told me the only other photos from the period he had seen were NKP Berkshires pulling TOFC consists. He asked me if N&W had a name for their trailer on flatcar service. Can anyone answer this question?

Southern originally called theirs COMAR - for COntainerized Motor and Rail. Seaboard was Razorback. Some others were TrucTrain for Pennsy, FlexiVan for NYC. I think B&O was TOFCEE.
