I wouldn’t have thought of that particular operation. Nice to know.

“Trains with Head End Brake Pipe Supply Only”. What trains on the NW would NOT meet this criteria in the 1973 timeframe (i.e. what trains would fall outside these special instructions)?
By that time, the N&W experimented with mid-train radio power. It didn't work out very well. Not until around the mid to late '80s did radio units (ala Southern style) rear their ugly head again on the N&W proper. This time working, more or less.
