Post-1964 merger, the N&W used dome cars from the Wabash fleet on the
Powhatan Arrrow during its later years. As the Arrow phased out, the cars
were used on the Pocahontas.

The cars were stainless steel fluted side cars with a blue lteer board over
the windows with yellow-gold lettering.

See Jim Nichols "N&W in Color" for photographs of the cars.

Did the Norfolk and Western use domed passenger cars in either the
Powhatan Arrow or the Pocahontas? I do not remember seeing them being
used. The reason is that AHM is selling them.
