So, all of this begs the question of when did the station numbers become 
district or line specific? For example, Roanoke was 10254, Shen. Div. 
north started with 13; (13142 Waynesboro, Glasgow 13194), Shen. Div. 
south began with 14.

It is my understanding that the stations were numbered for the next even 
number north of the station.
