I believe the 1952 campaign train of Dwight Eisenhower used double headed J's from Winston-Salem to Roanoke, Lynchburg, and beyond.

Class Js running together was not what I'd consider a common occurrence. The only consistent occasions that I've found were special trains, usually carrying a US President or candidate. There was an occasional occurrence, but for the most part during normal operations, no. Rarely were Js doubleheader in any case, I suspect that the photos you are thinking of Class K2/K2a with freight locomotives. Those cases, were generally a break in run after shopping, or simply moving power to return it to its home terminal.
It is your railroad, run whatever you like!

I've seen many photos of J's double headed with other types of locomotives but did the N&W ever run 2 J's together. I'm an N scale modeler and would love to run two of them together, I think it would look great. Thanks in advance.
