Division Realignment

Post by Wayne Gest » Sat Oct 31, 2020 4:55 pm

NS has combined more operating divisions and renamed some of them. The Lake Division through Fort Wayne is now divided between the Heartland Division, west of Fort Wayne to Chicago and west of Peru. East of Fort Wayne and Peru, it becomes the Great Lakes Division.

Other than the fact that Fort Wayne seems to slipping in importance in the Norfolk Southern world, it probably does not.

It probably won't make much difference in Fort Wayne. The dispatchers are gone, the Lake Division HQ was moved to Cincinnati last year (?), rumor has it that the yard office at East Wayne may be demolished and all functions and crews reporting would be moved to the former super's building but that's strictly a unsubstantiated rumor.
