NS to Idle Part of West Virginia Secondary

Norfolk South said it will mothball a portion of its West Virginia Secondary, a 253-mile ex-Conrail line between Columbus and central West Virginia.

NS said the route has seen a steady decline in business in recent years due to falling coal traffic. Last September, NS idled a 33-mile section of the former Virginian Railway main line between Elmore and Princeton, West Virginia.
