The move lowers the non-union retirement age from 55 to 53.
The program also allows some employees to add three years both to their length of service and to their age in calculating their pension.
Roughly 18 percent of the company's non-union workforce will be eligible for the program.
Norfolk Southern says the buyout offer is an attempt to reduce operating expenses.
The application deadline is December 31st.

(( For forty years, they've taken in hundreds of children from across Virginia.. boys and girls who come from broken or disfunctional homes and suffer from a variety of emotional problems.

The children come to Patrick Henry Plantation which operates four group homes across central and Southside Virginia.

((AND THEN THE BOYS HOME DOWN IN HALIFAX WAS A GIFT AS WELL...))
[RUNS= 03]


Most of the homes only house about a dozen children each... and there's a long list of girls waiting to be placed.
Expanding at any of the current locations is not an option.

So when developer C.B. Robertson offered the Plantation his family's 200- year- old farm in Charlotte County, director Sandy Gregory was quick to accept.
Now comes the challenge of raising the money to build a new girls home on the property, so they can move about a dozen young women off their waiting list and into a stable home environment.

The public has responded once before when the Rustburg girls home lost its horse barn to a fire in 1998.
Gregory says he's confident the Plantation's supporters will come through again.
