Norfolk Southern Railway Heritage started with the South Carolina Canal & Rail Road Company beginning passenger service in 1830 in Charleston, South Carolina. Later this railroad became part of the Southern Railway. Many railroads were merged into the Norfolk & Western Railway, including the New York, Chicago & St Louis Railway (the Nickel Plate Road), which was well known for its Berkshire steam locomotives and the Illinois Terminal that was once the largest midwestern interurban system. A combination of the Southern Railway and the Norfolk & Western formed the Norfolk Southern Railway in 1982. In commemoration of its 30th anniversary in 2012, Norfolk Southern Railway painted twenty locomotives in commemorative paint schemes representing many of its predecessor railroads. These locomotives and other special painted locomotives are included in a color section in this book. The book also looks at NS operations, mostly in the state of Pennsylvania, including Horseshoe Curve, Lilly, Cresson, Gallitzin, the Juniata Locomotive Shops, Lewistown Junction and Conway Yard as well as Bellevue/Moorman Yard in Ohio.
