Norfolk SouthernIt's been a long time since I had to stop for a train, so I thought I would take advantage of the moment. I wish we had more trains moving both goods and people.
FYI: From Wikipedia: Norfolk Southern was created from predecessor railroads which date back to the early portion of the 19th century. Prior to modern times, the three main branches of the current corporate family tree were for many years themselves systems: Norfolk and Western, formed in 1881, Southern Railway System in 1894, and Conrail, formed much later, in 1976. Each of these grew from many smaller local and regional lines as the railroad industry grew.
Today, Norfolk Southern, headquartered in Norfolk, Virginia, operates over 20,000 route miles in 22 eastern States.
We could use some of that rain in my part of the country. The Weather Channel gives us a pretty good chance of rain, starting tomorrow (August 4) through Tuesday. It's still going to be miserably hot.
