To provide a more consistent and reliable service product that supports growth, Norfolk Southern is implementing a new operating plan that will streamline yard operations and improve the flow of trains across our 22-state network. Over the past several months, Norfolk Southern’s operations, service design, and customer service teams have assessed all aspects of our business operations to enhance efficiencies and better serve our customers. We have analyzed operations at individual rail yards and terminals across our network to develop a structured, executable, and recurring plan to speed up network velocity, increase service frequency, and achieve maximum efficiencies.

It sounds like NS is taking a good approach to implementing a plan for scheduled railroading on a system level. I wish you luck!
What I find interesting is how railroads moved away from this in the first place.... Didn't most railroads traditionally operate on a fully scheduled basis back in the mid-1900's? When railroads ran both freight and passenger trains, it seems that they were both scheduled trains.
To partially answer my own question, I would imagine that it was hard to keep those schedules when the physical plant started to deteriorate in 1970's.
I read that the infamous late EHH was known to cook the PSR books by just annulling the train symbol if it didn't make its time! Boy am I glad that NS didn't get stuck with him...
