Review of Marion Rails CSX & NS on 3 Mainlines DVD

 3.5 of 5 (2)
Marion, Ohio is located about 35 miles north of the state capitol of Columbus. Marion used to feature trackage owned by Erie Lackawanna, Pennsylvania, New York Central, and Chesapeake & Ohio. While there is still a bit of Erie trackage remaining under CSX ownership, the other three lines are the mainlines through Marion. Running from Toledo to Columbus is the former C&O line which is now CSX. Running from Bellevue to Columbus is the former Pennsylvania Railroad, now owned by Norfolk Southern(formerly N&W). These two lines run together in a southerly direction past on either side of the Marion Station. At this point each crosses a double diamond of the 2-track east-west CSX line from Cleveland to St. Louis, which was formerly New York Central, and more recently Conrail, which is now owned by CSX. So CSX has two lines through Marion, but NS actually runs more train normally through per day, or so it seems.

Besides seeing a wealth of different trains and at varied times of the day,
