Hi all,

I'm wondering if anybody has any information (ie. train numbers) of the various Norfolk Southern trains that continued north through Manassas, Virginia, after the shutdown of Pot Yard. This would be the period of time between 1989 and the modern day. I'm especially interested in the trains that no longer operate over this line including the coal trains that once went to the PEPCo plant in Alexandria and the trailer trains that terminated at Van Dorn Street Yard.

Also, any pictures that could be added to help my understanding would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
