RSS Feeds

What is RSS?

RSS is a technology that delivers updated news from your favorite sites such as to you automatically, as it happens.

Why use RSS?

RSS readers get RSS feeds from Web sites and display them for viewing. Using an RSS reader can help you receive the latest updates from your favorite Web sites automatically instead of visiting the sites to search for the latest information every time.

How to use RSS

Internet Explorer 7, Safari and Firefox web browsers have built-in RSS subscription capabilities. When you see an RSS icon, you can click it to view your options for that site.

You may also use an RSS reader. RSS readers will download and display RSS feeds for you. Many free and for-purchase news aggregators are available for download. Two popular free readers are Google Reader and Bloglines. To view one of the Norfolk Southern feeds in your RSS reader, copy the URL/shortcut that corresponds to the topic that interests you. Then paste the URL into your reader.
