All intermodals (203, 204, 211, 212, 213, 214, 227, 228) and manifests (12R, 13R) are the same.  35Q is now Allentown, PA - Greencastle, PA and 36Q was abolished.

No change to 349/350 as they’re still between Linwood and Selma.  351/352 were previously between Linwood and Raleigh but are now to/from Winston-Salem.  However, 351/352 were changed before NS’ TOP21 rollout.

As for the Rathole, there were a good handful of symbol changes but the line virtually didn’t lose or gain the number of scheduled trains.

The aforementioned trains are the only changes on those particular routes.  The TOP21 changed only the manifest trains and some autorack trains.  The intermodal network wasn’t changed...at least not yet.
