Norfolk Southern to rock National Train Day

Railroad rolls out trains, family fun, and a new twist on an old classic

NORFOLK, Va., May 9, 2013

NORFOLK, Va., May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Norfolk Southern (NYSE: NSC) will
rock National Train Day with the premiere of its new television advertisement,
which shows how trains connect communities and businesses to drive economic

The commercial, "Norfolk Southern, What's Your Function," will show during
National Train Day, the sixth annual celebration of freight and passenger
trains hosted by Amtrak, on Saturday, May 11, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Union
Station in Washington, D.C.

NS activities will center on the theme "Train Day Rocks" and the first showing
of the commercial, based on the "Conjunction Junction" song from the
Schoolhouse Rock! television show, a Disney / American Broadcasting company
property that celebrates its 40^th anniversary this year. A locomotive
engineer sang the original song as he hooked together boxcars with "and, or,
and but." The NS ad updates this classic to remind everyone that trains
connect us all.

In conjunction with the debut, there will be a Schoolhouse Rock! sing-along.
NS will display rail equipment, including its Marco Polo, West Virginia, and
Delaware office cars; Exhibit Car; Research and Test Car; and two locomotives.
(Click here to view a slideshow of the equipment.)

Across the country, more than 200 communities are hosting events at local
train stations, railroad museums, and other locations. At Chicago's Union
Station, Norfolk Southern will display its Conrail heritage locomotive.
