40th Anniversary of the End of Wabash Operations. This Banner issue, a ten-section double issue to close out the 2003 publication year, commemorates the 40th Anniversary of the leasing of the Wabash Railroad Company by the Norfolk & Western Railroad Company on October 16, 1964. The first article was taken from the 1973 issue of Norfolk & Western magazine and relates the story of the Wabash Railroad from its roots with the Northern Cross Railroad in Illinois in 1838 to the 2428-mile system it was in 1964. The next article by Jim Holmes explains the circumstances that led up to the October 1964 leasing of the Wabash Railroad and its ultimate merger into the Norfolk Southern system in the 1990s. Four articles were selected from the original Wabash Railroad publication, The Banner, for the year 1964 and reprinted word for word and in the same style and formatting of the original issues. Also included is a chart that shows at a glance the major components that eventually made up the Wabash system and their years of existence. Also featured are two tables of information as of 2004 about Wabash right-of-way still in existence and Wabash equipment and structures that have been preserved. Following is James Tilton's article detailing where some of the towns and timetable names came from in What’s in a Name Along the Wabash. Winding up this issue are tables listing Wabash Station Numbers for Transportation Purposes originally issued in 1964, sorted first by number and then alphabetically. At the centerfold is a historic timeline of Wabash railroad milestones from the Northern Cross until the company’s demise.
