I was reading Norfolk Southerns second Quarter 10Q when I made a amazing discovery. The legal corporation Consolidated Rail Corp was never disolved it is owned by NS and CSX who share track rights. I guess will still see Conrail Blue and Norfolk Black together.:Y:
No guys are forgetting about Conrail's Shared Assets. There are 3 lines in the eastern USA that is still run by Conrail and un-touched Conrail locomotives in their original paint, but they run locally and not nationally like they did. I know one of their lines is in New Jersey, one I think in Chicago, and the last one is here in good ol' Detroit! Gotta drive about 15 miles east twords Downtown Detroit to find the Conrail's line. -Chris
There are several areas here in NJ, I know the NEC is ne and the Chemical Coast area, plus the reactivaed rail portion here in Staten Island has warning signs with Conrail on them and there's a Conrail sticker on a crossing post. Even though it is small, you could say Conrail now has NYC operations. Tried getting pictures of the SI side about a week ago but half the pics came out with red over them, haven't used my old manual 35mm in a while so I've been relearning it.
