  • The Norfolk Southern Corporation (NYSE: NSC) (also known as Norfolk Southern Corp or NS Corp) is a publicly traded stock corporation on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the symbols NSC based in Norfolk, Virginia. The company was incorporated in 1980 and was officially established in 1982. The company is the second business entity to use the "Norfolk Southern" name. It is the holding company for the Norfolk Southern Railway, a major Class I railroad that was established in 1894 as the Southern Railway. The Norfolk Southern system was formed in 1982 which consisted of the Southern Railway and the Norfolk & Western Railway. On December 31, 1990, the Southern Railway was renamed "Norfolk Southern Railway" and in 1997 the Norfolk and Western was absorbed into the renamed Norfolk Southern Railway, ending the the existence of the Norfolk and Western Railway and having the renamed Norfolk Southern Railway becoming the only railroad in the entire Norfolk Southern system after that. In 1999, the system which is basically the renamed Norfolk Southern Railway, grew substantially with the acquisition of over half of Conrail. The primary business function of the Norfolk Southern Corporation is the rail transportation of raw materials, intermediate products, and finished goods across the Southeast, East, and Midwest United States. The corporation further facilitates transport to the remainder of the United States through interchange with other rail carriers while also serving overseas transport needs by serving several Atlantic and Gulf Coast ports. The company also is a major landowner and operates a marine terminal. The company's stock is a component of the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Transportation Average stock market indices. The company's Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer is James A. Squires. As of October 1, 2014, Norfolk Southern Corporation's total public stock value was slightly over $34.5 billion. On November 17, 2015, Canadian Pacific Railway Limited announced an offer to purchase all outstanding shares of Norfolk Southern Corporation, at a price in excess of the US$26 Billion capitalization of the US based railway corporation. If completed, the merger would form the largest single railroad network in North America, reaching from the Pacific coast to the Atlantic coast to the Gulf Coast. On December 4, 2015, Norfolk Southern Corporation rejected Canadian Pacific Railway Limited's offer, but CP replied that it was "committed" to a merger with NS. (en)
