The March 27, 1935, issue of the Bluefield (WV) Daily Telegraph had an 
article about a "gigantic" landslide at Ingleside, WV, that blocked both 
the N&W and VGN main lines.  According to the article the following is 
the detour route for N&W passenger train No. 16.

"Eastbound Norfolk and Western train No. 16 came into Bluefield last 
night and was re-routed over the Clinch Valley district to Norton, 
thence over the L. and N. to A p -
palachla, Va and then over the Southern to Bristol. From Bristol the 
train was routed over the N. and W. to Roanoke."

Do you think that it arrived in Roanoke on time?
