Chicago Line questions

Post by BEDT 14 » Thu Sep 30, 2010 2:00 pm

Hi All!

I have a few questions regarding the Chicago Line between Sandusky & Toledo, specifically: Danbury, Gypsum & Port Clinton Ohio area:

1) What NS Division is this?
2) What NS Subdivision is this?
3) Do the mileposts progess higher in number eastward or westward.

The reason for this inquiry is that I took pictures in the area in 2005, and would like to provide correct location info in photo captions. Extensive internet search has not provided any areas (unless I'm looking in the wrong places with the wrong search terms!)

Thanks to any that can help!

Unsure of "sub-division", but I'm pretty sure it's the Dearborn Division.

Unless NS has changed things, Danbury is CP-248 and Pt. Clinton is CP-253.

Mileage is counted from Buffalo as this is former New York Central mainline.

Hi shlustig!

I was taking pix at South Lightner Road grade crossing back in 2005. Not exactly Danbury and not exactly Gypsum...

But I found NS track diagrams that give the exact MP.. Which also bear your statement out. So, thanks!

Phil,

If you found these track diagrams on the net, how about a link please.
