The April issue of  Trains shows that both of the Ringling Brothers circus
trains with pass  over former N&W trackage in the near future.  The dates
can be bracketed by the performance dates; I'm looking for information on
expected specific passage dates and times through Roanoke, if anyone is
privy to that information?

Blue train:
- From Baltimore, down the Shenandoah Valley, Roanoke, on to Charleston -
between April 30 and May 4.
- From Charleston, back through Roanoke, Lynchburg, Burkeville and Richmond
then onwards - between May 7 and May 12

Red train:
- From Cincinnati; via Columbus, Portsmouth, Bluefield, Roanoke, Lynchburg
and on to Norfolk - between March 19 and March 23.

Thanks in advance,

Dave Phelps
