Norfolk Southern moving to a Centralized Train Dispatching Center

Isn’t that what CSX has been doing for a bunch of years now and when there’s a hiccup, the whole system goes down, instead of just a regional problem?

An NS employee told me the same thing this morning. He wasn't happy because not only does it disrupt the employees and their families, but the dispatchers loose touch with the local areas.

My understanding per multiple NS sources yesterday is that Norfolk Southern will move all train dispatching for all divisions to the Goode Building in Atlanta, GA. 


Can anyone confirm this?
