RAILROAD OPERATING INFORMATION

NORFOLK SOUTHERN

Former Pennsylvania Railroad

Typically PRR lines east of Chicago in northern Indiana and Michigan.

PRR divisions typically had a main line and some branch lines. As divisions were consolidated resulting in multiple main lines, different naming systems were adopted.

Many segments have been abandoned, or sold to short line operators.
