 Pennsy P85br coaches  alternated with N&W P3 coaches between Norfolk and Chicago riding on trains 3 and 4.  Sometimes a Pennsy coach would show up on 21 and 22 between Richmond and Norfolk but not often. N&W coaches went as far a Harrisburg, Pa on trains 1 and 2 from Harrisburg to Hagerstown. To balance miles Pennsy coaches would be sent to Roanoke for use on trains 15 and 16 to run off the mileage imbalance.  Harold Davenport

 In many videos and stills of N&W passenger trains there are frequently Pennsylvania RR P85 lightweight coaches in the consists. I can understand Pullman cars and baggage cars from different roads but why would a coach venture so far from the home road?
