Shot in August, 1999, merger day plus 85. Conrail’s Chicago Line now belongs to CSX, so we took a look at the line between Selkirk and Buffalo to see what was happening. Power is half CSX and half re-numbered Conrail, with leased units and run-through power making for some colorful railroading. Lots of traffic keeps the action going continuously. Some familiar locations plus some new. Check out the changes on the Chicago Line, you won’t be sorry.

  1. Dan

    It’s been less than three months since CSX and Norfolk Southern formally acquired Conrail, and the Chicago Line has a different look. There’s still heavy traffic and a wide variety of consists, but this is now a CSX line, and that’s reflected in the locomotive lash-ups. There’s still plenty of Conrail blue, but the transition is well underway. Videography is well done, and the rail action is non-stop. This is a nice snapshot of the changes on a popular and busy part of the Chicago Line.

    This line was covered several years before while under Conrail Blue in a 2 volume series. Having travelled the line on Amtrak… I was hoping to see something really exciting and better than the Conrail series. Really…. the major difference is: the ownership of the line. It’s a good video, don’t get me wrong. Plenty of railroad action, which is why we purchase railroad videos. I was hoping for something slightly better than what we have seen in the past.

    A great video, a lot of ex-conrail blue and older power.

    Ok for starters its the other way around from the case its starts in Selkirk and ends in Buffalo not like the case says. still Conrail units around and leased units make for some colorful railroading.
