Norfolk Southern CEO Wick Moorman has been named Railroader of the Year by Railway Age magazine.
“In addition to performing solidly, controlling costs, improving productivity and continuing to invest in growth capital in a recessionary economy, Norfolk Southern has excelled in technological innovation and development of public-private partnerships,” says the magazine in its award.
“Among the many examples of these accomplishments are the railroad’s building and testing of an all-electric, battery-powered yard locomotive and opening the Heartland Corridor, a major intermodal artery developed in partnership with several states,” says Railway Age. “Norfolk Southern is strongly positioned for growth and is an example of why railroads are increasingly the mode of choice for the nation’s transportation needs.”
In 1972, Modern Railroads magazine (later acquired by Railway Age) named former UTU President Charles Luna as its Railroader of the Year. In 2000, Railway Age named The Railroad Worker as Railroader of the Century.
