Norfolk Southern Office Car Special

Yesterday, I watched Norfolk Southern train 956 led by NS F-9A #270, F-7B #275, F-7B #276, and F-9A #271 southbound at Boyce, Virginia on the NS H-line en route from Altoona, Pennsylvania to Augusta, Georgia for the Masters Golf Tournament. Thanks to a heads-up from Paul M. in Hagerstown, Maryland, I figured it would be dark by the time the train got to the B-line so I drove north to the old train station at Boyce. This was the first trip for the F-units since they were renumbered from #4270, #4275, #4276 and #4271 so that they would not conflict with the new AC44C6M series. Photos and a video are below.
