Don't know the difference between the three floorplans, but this looks
like it is the best bet we have to get close to the cars that ran on the
N&W at least into the 1950's. The four mentioned had "County" added to
their names by then. The Norfolk County was similar, but had a
vestibule on each end, whereas the others had a solarium blind end
(lounge end). Jim Nichols
