Hi Everybody, I'm headed down to Norfolk next Saturday and my info is fairly old for that area. Am posting it here as I had it in 1992. Any additions/corrections appreciated:

NS: Lambert's Point
161.25 F2 Yard
160.44 Empty yard
161.025 Hump
161.07 Pier 5
160.305 Pier 6 Ch-A
161.490 Pier 6 Ch-B
161.385r Car Inspectors (inp. 160.62)
160.515r ARN (inp. 161.325)

PORTSMOUTH (CSX)
161.100 Clerk & Yardmaster
161.040 use unknown
161.220 use unknown

SUFFOLK YARD (CSX)
161.190 F1 Yard
161.250 F2 Franklin Dist. Road

PORTLOCK YARD (NS)
161.190 F1 Yard/Dispatch
160.950 Southern
160.335 TOFC (Trailer on flat car)
161.280r Car Inspectors (inp. 160.47)

Chesapeake & Albemarle RR (no info on this)
160.755
160.950 - for interchange w/SOU

Commonwealth Railway (running from Suffolk Yard to West Norfolk) Hoest Celanese Plant?
469.550 - licensed to Rail Link
161.250 - not confirmed
161.490 - given as a possibility, not sure why now


NC&VA RR (Boykins VA to Tunis, NC)
161.31 - confirmed 25 years ago (for all the good THAT does...)

Eastern Shore RR (presumably now Bay Shore RR)
161.445 - Road?
160.695 - unk
160.800 - at Conrail end?
161.070 - at Conrail end?
160.980 - at Conrail end...or Norfolk-Portsmouth Beltline?
161.130 - could swear I heard it way back when

NORFOLK & PORTSMOUTH BELT LINE
160.980 F1 - Berkeley to Portsmouth?
160.905 F2 - Berkeley to Sewell's Point?

Of course, I'm so far behind that I haven't even figured out how CSX & NS divided up Conrail at the north end. Any help straightening out this would be great. Am planning to have at least some time in Norfolk with the scanner recording the rail band. We'll see what that does...

BTW, found only one Roanoke channel active on NXDN, 161.07. Listed as East End Car Shop I think. Not much activity.

"A lot of 'fluff' channels in there, the only one's you'll need on NS are 161.190 and 161.250, N&W Road 1 and 2. 190 is the main road channel and 250 is the yard channel. You should only need 160.590 for CSX, but 161.520 is also used at times. NPBL channels look right, I also have 160.845 written down, don't use them enough to know what they're main channel is, and CWRY is 160.425."

That's what he sent me back

I'd definitely be interested in a group with railfans. Does it have a name I can search for?
