Notes:

  • Origin and destination columns indicate "real-world" origin or destination city. Actual origin or destination on the layout would be Connellsville/Winchester and NS Charleston staging yards for northern cities or Wadesboro and NS Roanoke for southern cities.
  • Symbols are taken from unused slots in actual CSXT train numbering system from the early 1990s.
  • CR indicates Conrail
  • DS&P indicates Delaware, Susquehanna & Potomac (CP)
  • CR&E indicates Charleston, Roanoke & Eastern (NS)
  • CSXT Shenandoah Division local trains share the use of the B identifier with the Baltimore Division similar to the way that the Florence and Blue Ridge Divisions shared the F identifier in the early 1990s.
