Norfolk Southern (NS) awarded the Luzerne and Susquehanna Railway Company (LSX) a Silver Business Initiative Award at the 10th Annual Shorline Meeting held in Roanoke, Virginia on July 10-12, 2011. The Silver Business Initiative Award recognizes those railroads who increased their rail traffic by at least 500 rail cars. The growth in LSX traffic was driven by the opening of an ethanol transload terminal in Avoca, PA. Of the 250 shortline railroads that are partnered with NS, only 3, including LSX, received the Silver Business Initiative Award.
