In addition to when and what, where can be important!  I model Southern's Winston-Salem division in and around Greensboro where SOU, N&W, and C&O vents were relatively plentiful in 1934; at least according to conductor Snow's documentation.

My thesis advisor told me that any conclusion should be accompanied by a statement "for whom and under what conditions" since always and everywhere rarely apply!

Thanks for the help Bill.

My point is that is not helpful to generalize. While in the pre-1930 era Southern's Vent fleet was important in mine it was nothing. I think it is as important to talk about "when" as well as "what" in many cases.
