The N&W Annual report for 1955 indicates piggyback service was inaugurated November 14, 1955 between Bristol and Roanoke. In the early years of piggyback service (when steam locomotives were still the main motive power) did the N&W have any trailers with N&W logos? I've found pictures of trailers in "steam era" lettering, but since the N&W paint scheme didn't change until 1964 (I think) I'm not sure when these N&W trailers were first used. What types of flat cars and lettering, and what trailers would have been used in piggyback service in the 1955 to 1959 time frame? Thanks.Shawn Harley
