N&W had only two Jordan spreaders.  One was 550037.  It was  school bus
yellow with black lettering.  It had the Fishwick-style "NW",   Two projects
come to mind where a Jordan spreader MIGHT have been used:
1- the expansion of Luther Yard in the early 70s.
2- the support tracks for the GM assembly plant at Wentzville.
In January, 1976, both the Jordan spreaders were used to plow snow  in
Buffalo.  En route to Bison Yard, the wings on one spreader failed  to
clear a deck plate girder near Erie, PA.  The Superintendent of  Buffalo
Terminal referred to them as the "Georgian" spreaders.
