Another thing about the RF&P the engines with even numbers faced one direction while the odd numbers faced the opposite, but I do not remember which way is correct. I remember reading this in Trains magazine many years ago. They were actually a bridge route connecting two railroads. One in the north the other in the south.

Yup Dale, and that accounts for their slogan - "Linking North and South." In particular, the ACL and SCL in the south (at Richmond) with the PRR and B&O in the north (at Washington DC). The SOU had its own route into DC, so it wouldn't have routed its southeast to northeast traffic via RF&P.
