That's great news. Thanks for letting us know. I'd heard different things about what may happen to this line and the line north of Blacksburg. Glad to see that at least one segment of the SB line will live on. As Franklin said, they did often just keep the spacer car on south of where it was actually needed as evident in these shots --

This shot isn't possible anymore since they widened Hwy. 5 and ripped this track of. But sometimes they did leave the spacer car in Blacksburg when they used only one unit.
