NS 8102 is the first of the 20 heritage units that Norfolk Southern released a few years ago that I have seen. The unit came to Denver on a BNSF manifest as part of a power share. It was in town for less than 24 hours, departing south on President's Day. The Pennsylvania Railroad started in 1946 and was the largest railroad in the United States (in terms of traffic and revenue) for the first half of the 20th century. In its history, it actually had a budget larger than the US government and had a workforce of 250,000 people. In 1968, it merged with New York Central to create Penn Central. Eight years later, Penn Central became a part of Conrail. Finally, Conrail was split in 1999 with 58% going to Norfolk Southern.
