I THINK that I saw a W switching Norfolk (Union?) Station sometime between '49 and '51 (when I was 11 - 13 years old).

A large number left the roster in 1925-26, but a few lasted up to 1952 before scrapping, as Harry said, at Norfolk, for the most part. Now, I did not spend a huge amount of time studying the roster, I could have easily missed something.
