Default New NS Double Stack Service - Hampton Roads - West

Heatland Corridor Starts Up

Presumably NS will be putting out a press release shortly. For now...

Quote:
"After sunset on Wednesday, Norfolk Southern Train 233 will leave Hampton Roads pulling double-stacked cargo containers headed to Chicago and Ohio."

The following article provides additional information including a report that NS will hold a ceremony on Thursday at Radford VA at the Cowan Tunnel.

Gene Bowker posted this on various yahoo groups:
The Norfolk Southern schedules ceremony to mark first Heartland Corridor
trains - http://exm.nr/95mogV

Will be interesting to see what kind of schedule changes this leads to with the
ability to route double-stacks via the NS Pocahontas Division for the first
time.

The better question is how many NS bulls will be on the Pokey.

Expect some tickets and or arrests.

Well, if you stay of the ROW you should be good. The bigger question is "Will you?"

Sadly, no. The ROW along the Pokey runs wider than many people think it does.
