RAILROAD OPERATING INFORMATION

CANADIAN NATIONAL

Former Illinois Central

Lines are grouped into historic operating divisions. As passenger service declined during the 1950's, many divisions were consolidated.

Illinois Central historically identified its lines as districts, prior to adopting the CN term subdivision.
