    Default Powhatan Arrow activity

    I was just thinking, we have enough N&W steam for this now, so I think the N&W Powhatan Arrow would be a great activity for either the Pocahantas or East River District routes, based on the original schedule. I think when they began running the Arrow, it had no baggage cars, 4 coaches, a diner, a lounge, and an observation car. (Seven car consist) I have tried to make activities before, with very limited success, but I no longer have the time to try this myself. I'm just "throwing the idea out" in case any of you that know what they are doing (unlike me) would like to try this.

    Hi,

    Do you have a "Powhatan Arrow" schedule that you could share? I don't have the Pokey downloaded, nor do I have any time :+ , but the now-defunct N&W Peavine runs right near my office, and I'm up for the challenge.

    I've got two N&W schedules for the Arrow from the postwar steam era; when I dig them out of my storage, I'll post the relevant information.
