If you have a Mountain USRA variety, it will do just nicely for the Virginia Division power. Then as Joe stated the E's took over E-4, 6, 7, and 8's.

Full details, including color photos of both the diesels and passenger cars, are in the Society's book "Orange Blossom Special," available through our catalog for $26.95 plus shipping.
