At Norfolk Southern, everything we do is connected. The tracks we lay down are connected to the towns that surround them. Our business is connected to jobs, economics, environmental benefits, and more efficient delivery of goods.

We at Norfolk Southern are looking to strengthen connections with our communities and forge new connections. In acknowledgement of this shared future, we will do all we can to ensure that the impacts we leave – social, economic, and environmental – are positive for generations to come.
