This is part of the 'original' Norfolk Southern (absorbed by SR in 1974) line between Norfolk, VA and Charlotte, NC. Parts of the norfolk-edenton segment are operated by a short line, the impressive miles long trestle over Albemare Sound has been removed, and the remaining segment from Plymouth to Raleigh via Chocowinity via Greenville and Wilson were leased to short line CLNA from Norfolk Southern in 2008. Chocowinity (once called Mardsen by NS because it woundnt fit on train orders) has a still active yard used by NS to serve the PCS phosphate mines at Lee Creek, NC which is accessed by the WL line at Phosphate Jct.

The Chesapeake and Albemarle has been operating this section of the "original" NS (NS Ry) for nearly 20 years. The C&A is now a RailAmerica company.
Do you have any pictures or information about Norfolk, VA to Chocowinity, NC? Please
