A Norfolk Southern Question

There was another smaller NS from 1942 to 82 and they decided to take the name for the new conglomerate, I guess to save arguments over keeping one or the other name of the biggest two parts and being an amalgam of both.

There are two Norfolk Southern railroads. The original Norfolk Southern Railroad was formed in the 1880s

It ended up being bought by the Southern in 1974.

 

The current Norfolk Southern is the result of the merger of the Norfolk and Western and the Southern in 1982.
