Remarks & Notes 
I never understood why, but Southern Railway usually held its Annual Shareholder Meeting in Richmond, VA. The old Southern freight house in Richmond had been refurbished for that purpose. Since Richmond was located on a Southern branch, the Southern Directors Special always used the RF&P between Washington and Richmond to reach their annual meeting. The train was passing through Elmont, VA on May 23, 1978 with GP35 No. 131, GP40-2 No. 142 and four cars of Southern dignitaries.
