In the fast paced world of Lumber Norfolk Southern strives for competitiveness and full coverage in our Real Time Rating. Effective June 1, 2014 we take a another step toward our goals with the renewal of NSQ 43040 covering Lumber originating on Norfolk Southern.

To summarize the structural changes in this newest publication:

  • New Station Groups have been created and are being used in this version of the publication. These new groups do not include FSAC 60000 series to eliminate potential duplication.

  • Sections 3, 4, and 5 have been expanded to include additional handling line destinations
