Norfolk Southern is a global transportation company operating in the United States and Canada. On February 9, 1980, the Norfolk Southern Railway company officially separated from its parent organization Norfolk & Western Railway due to an incompatible long-term operational method. The railroad has been nicknamed "the southern" by some railfans.

Norfolk Southern Corporation was created as a holding company on December 31, 1990 for the Norfolk and Western Railway Company and the Southern Railway Company. The new railroad began operations December 31, 1982 and contains about 11,500 route miles of track in 22 states east of the Mississippi River and north of the Ohio River. As such, the modern day corporation comprises two railroads: The Norfolk Southern Railway (NS) and Hapeville Railroad Co. The main competitors are CSX Transportation, BNSF Railway, Union Pacific Railroad, and Canadian National Railway.
