Take a tour of this Pocahontas Region coal hauler and discover how the Norfolk and Western Railway made the transition from a predominantly regional coal hauling railroad to a major midwestern carrier, thus adding such fine passenger trains as the Wabash Cannonball, Banner Blue, Blue Bird, City of Kansas City and others to its own Pocahontas, Powhatan Arrow, and Cavalier passenger trains and better balance its freight traffic mix. See how the N&W evolved and how it ended up when the creation of Norfolk Southern in 1982 came along. Sample freight and passenger schedules, equipment rosters and other information are all here to make your trip on the Route of Precision Transportation a more enjoyable one. All Aboard. Pocahontas is now ready for passenger boarding at Track No.2.
