Wasn't milepost 0 on the N&W located at the seaward end of old Coal Pier #1?

There is no all-encompassing milepost zero for NS. The mileposts from the predecessor lines are used. The N&W main line from Norfolk to Columbus was numbered in miles from Norfolk. But other routes were numbered from other points of origin. The Shenandoah Division continues to be numbered in miles from Hagerstown, MD. The Winston-Salem District is numbered in miles from Roanoke.
