NS offers free rail service to aid New York recovery


Norfolk Southern Corp. Sept. 13 offered free rail transportation service to New York state and city officials to help them remove non-hazardous construction and demolition debris from the devastated World Trade Center site.

NS would provide up to 1,000 heavy-duty rail cars staged in the New Jersey Shared Assets Area, then move the debris to disposal sites along its network.

"This is a small but tangible contribution that we can make to support the recovery effort," said David Goode, NS chairman, president and chief executive officer, in a prepared statement.
