Did they ever roll east into Virginia? Or were they basically captive to the west end?

It's a former P&WV caboose that became N&W in 1964.  The font appears correct.  I photographed some of these in Ohio during the 1970's.  These cabooses saw little to no service on the pre-1964 N&W.

I have read comments that the font is wrong in the lettering of this new Athearn Caboose.

I would like to hear comments on this thought, here is the link to the pdf.
