Norfolk and Southern Property Bid is for Reorganization Committee


??? Norfolk, Va., Dec. 7--The Norfolk and Southern Railway property late today was bid in for$8,500,000 by Rathbone Gardner, of New York, in the name of the Norfolk and Southern Reorganization committee.

Norfolk Southern wandered in and out of receivership many times.? With each reorganization there was an
attempt to keep the reporting marks simular.??Once it was?Norfolk Southern RailROAD.? Another time it
became Norfolk & Southern Railway.?? During one reorganization the ampersand was dropped and it
became Norfolk Southern again.? There is a drawing in the archives files?which shows the scroll herald
with the ampersand discretely obliterated by a diamond.
