Item 9.      Regulation FD Disclosure.

		On February 27 and 28, several senior officers of
Norfolk Southern Corporation will give the presentations
attached hereto as Exhibit 99 at the Corporation's conference
facilities at Brosnan Forest in Dorchester, South Carolina.

             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.
