Welcome to the Café/Lounge Car

I hope to keep a list of reading materials; books , magazines, journals, videos   here to help others research  the Norfolk Southern and the Pocahontas Division. If I have left any out, or there is one I am not aware of, please let me know by e-mailing me at the link below. Get yourself a coffee or soft-drink at the counter, pull up a chair and enjoy the Café-Lounge.
