Dec 14 (Reuters) - U.S. railroad operator Norfolk Southern Corp formally rejected a revised offer from Canadian Pacific Railway ltd, saying it was worth less than CP's earlier proposal.

The revised offer valued Norfolk shares at $88.52 based on Canadian Pacific shares' closing price on Friday, Norfolk said on Monday. Norfolk's shares closed at $89.44 on Friday.

Canadian Pacific first made its offer for Norfolk public on Nov. 17, but met with an unenthusiastic response.
