Mr. Bundy -
Any idea when the weigh-in-motion scale was developed for railroad use, and where its first several applications were on the N&W?
Prior to the 1943 new hump at Shaffers Crossing, and the weighing of coal at that location, did the N&W also weight its Tidewater coal on its arrival at Norfolk, like the VGN?
One wonders why the railroads never went to moving coal under a Shippers Weight Agreement, like most other freight moves today. Probably for the benefit of the consignee ... and I'll bet he pays dearly for it !
