from wiki:Norfolk and Western Railway(reporting markNW),[1]commonly called theN&W, was a USclass I railroad, formed by more than 200 railroad mergers between 1838 and 1982. It was headquartered inRoanoke, Virginia, for most of its existence. Its motto was "Precision Transportation"; it had a variety of nicknames, including "King Coal" and "British Railway of America".

The N&W was famous for manufacturing its ownsteam locomotives, which were built at theRoanoke Shops, as well as its ownhopper cars. After 1960, N&W was the last major Class I railroad using steam locomotives; the last remaining Y class 2-8-8-2s would eventually be retired between 1964 and 1965.

In December 1959, the N&W merged with theVirginian Railway(reporting mark VGN), a longtime rival in the Pocahontas coal region. By 1970, other mergers with theNickel Plate RoadandWabashformed a system that operated 7,595 miles (12,223km) of road on 14,881 miles (23,949km) of track from North Carolina to New York and from Virginia to Iowa.

In 1980, the N&W merged its business operation with those of theSouthern Railway, another profitable carrier to create theNorfolk Southern Corporationholding company. The N&W and the Southern Railway continued as separate railroads operating under a single holding company.

In 1990, the Southern Railway was renamed Norfolk Southern Railway and the holding company transferred the Norfolk & Western Railway to the control of the newly renamed company.
