Viewing Norfolk Southern Railway (Fonthill)

Back Order

Viewing Norfolk Southern Railway covers the history of this railroad, beginning with the South Carolina Canal & Rail Road Company, which in 1830 operated the first regularly scheduled passenger train in the United States.

Among the many railroads that became part of Norfolk Southern was the Pennsylvania Railroad, whose completion of the Horseshoe Curve in 1854 was an outstanding engineering achievement that transformed land transportation across Pennsylvania, contributing to the growth of the railroad.

By 1882, it became the largest railroad in the world. Norfolk Southern's special painted locomotives, representing many of the railroads that became part of its heritage, are included in this book.

Viewing Norfolk Southern Railway presents a selection of archive and recent photographs of trains operated by Norfolk Southern Railway from throughout its existence. Captions accompany each image. 128 pages.
