RAILROAD OPERATING INFORMATION

CSX TRANSPORTATION

Former New York Central

Typically NYC lines in southern Illinois and Indiana, generally between Indianapolis and St. Louis.

NYC divisions typically had a main line and some branch lines. Many branch lines did not have real names until after the 1968 Penn Central merger. As divisions were consolidated resulting in multiple main lines, different naming systems were adopted.

Many segments have been abandoned, or sold to short line operators.
