THE TIES THAT BIND

After years of deferred maintenance, Norfolk and Western Railway has embarked on "rebuilding" policy, emphasizing plant as opposed to equipment improvement. The policy is evidenced by the increase in capital expenditures and maintenance programs, including track ballasting and surfacing, ballast cleaning, vegetation control, replacement of ties and switches. Other aspects of the program include yard rehabilitation, installation of microwave network, and modernization of communications system.
