    Bummer -- I just learned from a friend at the company I retired from that NS is not producing a 2021 calendar. :( I'm not sure if it's a result of COVID and/or cost cutting, but this will mark the first time in perhaps 20+ years that an NS calendar hasn't graced our kitchen refrigerator. Their calendars featured excellent photos all taken by employees and I was always able to get one through my employer, a large rail shipper.

    I'll dig through my box of old NS, Anthracite Roads, Atlanta Chapter NRHS and other railroad calendars to see what I can find -- calendars from 2010, 1999, 1993 and 1982 will work for 2021. If all else fails, I'll have to actually BUY a calendar. :eek: :LOL:

    That isn't good news.

    CSX has also offered a calendar in past years and it's been much improved of late, but NS's was still better. Not sure what the status of CSX's 2021 calendar is.

    Yup, BNSF via the Facebook "Friends of BNSF" group sends out calendars still I always appreciate the views, especially when ND mades the cut! The local Trainmaster (Erich Linser) does phenomenal work.

    Sad NS isn't doing that, but if you still have it, that 1982 version would have some killer views of Fs, high hood GP30s, and other stuff long-hood-forward in daily service. Probably a view on Saluda, as it was still operating, and 611?

    Ends up that I retained a copy of NS's 2010 calendar and an Atlanta Chapter NRHS 1993 calendar, both of which are suitable for 2021. All set for another year and at $0.
