Item 9.      Regulation FD Disclosure.

             On February 10, 2003, Norfolk Southern Corporation issued
a press release announcing that its vice chairman and chief financial
officer was scheduled to address the Deutsche Bank Global Transportation
Conference at 11:20 a.m. Eastern time on February 12.  The press
release advised interested investors that they could listen via a
simultaneous webcast through the "Investing in the Thoroughbred"
section of the  After the webcast, Mr. Wolf's remarks
will be posted on  Copies of the 2003 Investor Book
distributed to Conference participants and Mr. Wolf's speech and
slide presentation are all attached hereto as Exhibit 99.

             Statements about future results made in the materials
furnished with this Form 8-K as exhibits constitute forward-looking
statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation
Reform Act of 1995.  Such statements (which usually are introduced
with words such as "expect," "anticipate," " plan," "believe" and
other words having a similar meaning and used in connection with
future events) are founded on expectations, estimates and
projections that reflect Management's good-faith evaluation of
information available at the time the statements were made.
As such, they are based upon, and will be influenced by, a number
of external variables -- more particularly described and
identified in our most recent annual report and quarterly report
to the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form 10-K and
Form 10-Q -- over which the Corporation may have no, or
incomplete, control:  for example, (1) changes in the economic
or credit environment in the Untied States and abroad; (2)
competitive conditions and pricing levels; (3) legislative and
regulatory developments; (4) changes in tax laws; and (5) other
risks and uncertainties not now identified.  Accordingly, actual
outcomes and results already or eventually may differ materially
from those indicated in such forward-looking statements.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934,
the Registrant has caused this report to be signed on its behalf by
the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
