How to gain access to railroad property

Browse Access NS Property

Safety of our employees, of individuals in the communities in which we operate, and individuals granted permission to enter railroad property, is our priority.  If you require access to NS property to perform work, you must submit an application to secure railroad approval.  Verbal authorization is not valid.

Entry onto railroad property may require the presence of a flagman.  Any inquiries regarding flagging should be sent to NS.Coordinator@RailPros.com.
