Final Fallen Flags: Norfolk Western, Southern, Norfolk Franklin and Danville, Auto Train

Norfolk and Western (seen here in two paints) and Southern merged to become Norfolk Southern.

The Norfolk, Franklin, and Danville just died. The tracks were removed, except where they were serving active sidings but they were given over to other railroads.

Finally, there was Auto Train. A wonderful experiment to take Americans from their cars without taking cars from Americans. It came a service of Amtrak.
