Conrail Hi Cube box car in transit somewhere in Ohio.

This photo comes to Eddie's Railfan Page from good friend and fellow railfan Dennis Madia.

Conrail existed as a railroad from 1976 until 1999. It was created from the U.S Goverment bail out of six bankrupt northeastern United States railroads. The railroads involved were...the Penn Central, Lehigh and Hudson River, Lehigh Valley, Reading, the Jersey Central, and the Erie Lackawanna.

After several years in operation, Conrail was acquired and split up through merger by the Norfolk Southern, and CSX Transportation Company.

Thank You for the photo Dennis.
