NS to Donate SR Railway Records to Atlanta History Center

Norfolk Southern said this week it would donate records of Southern Railway to the Atlanta History Center.

The archive includes hundreds of thousands of pages of documents and photographs.

The Class 1 railroad, which is headquartered in Atlanta, will give the center $500,000 to pay for digitizing the archive.

Southern merged with Norfolk & Western in 1982 to create NS.

NS CEO James Squires said in a statement that the archives belong to Atlanta because of the history they represent of that city.

“The history of Southern Railway is inseparable from the history of this region,” Squires said.
