3. If possible, provide the distance from your property to the railroad, such as from a railroad milepost marker, railroad bridge, or public road crossing the right of way.

4. Provide any print, plat, or survey details that might help identify the property location.

5. Include specific directions, including street names and landmarks, from the closest interstate or highway to the exact location of the subject property.

6. Include a nonrefundable application fee of $500.

7. After NS receives your application and reviews it and the title to the property, a real estate manager will contact you regarding property costs and instructions for completing the transaction.
