Norfolk Southern Heritage: Lionel continues its tribute to the rich heritage of modern railroads with an all-new series honoring the Norfolk Southern Railway. Operating currently in 22 eastern states, Norfolk Southern was originally created from a 1982 merger of major railways. In 1998, the railway also acquired a large portion of Conrail, which included the former Pennsylvania Railroad network including the famous Horseshoe Curve.
The Heritage line is beautifully and uniquely decorated to pay special tribute to the Norfolk Southern Railway and the fallen flag railroads it was built from.
Four important railroads that were ultimately absorbed into modern day Norfolk Southern are being honored in the 2010 catalog, including Southern, Virginian, Norfolk & Western, and Conrail.
