CSXT (B&O) Chicago-Louisville Line

Unread postby Y@ » Sun Jul 15, 2012 9:59 am

This CSX line is the fictional former B&O line running from Chicago to Louisville via Indianapolis. Aside from Chicago, Indianapolis and Louisville, all towns/cities along the route are fictional.

Trains use a connection and trackage rights via the former EJ&E at Griffith to get in and out of Chicago. From the control point at Broad Street in Griffith to the connection to the former Conrail Indy Line at Avon, the line is the Berlin Subdivision. Until the Conrail split in 1999, trains on the Berlin Sub crossed the Conrail main on a bridge just west of Avon. The existing connection to the Conrail main was rehabbed to carry the traffic after the split, and the mainline was removed between MP 141.3 and MP 150.6. Trains running to/from the south end of the former B&O use the Indy Line and the Indianapolis Terminal for a few miles before re-entering the B&O main on what is now the Williamston Subdivision south of Indy. As a whole, the former B&O is single track with passing sidings. B&O era CPL's also still dominate the line, with very few replacements aside from most intermediates on the Berlin Subdivision. The Williamston Subdivision is nearly untouched, complete with code line the entire way.

The Berlin Subdivision sees two pairs of road freights a day, along with locals, random grain trains and occasional reroutes from the former C&EI. South of Avon, the Williamston Subdivision sees three pairs of road freights, locals, and random grain and ethanol trains. Below is a train listing.
