Conrail Shared Assets Operations is a jointly owned subsidiary not unlike Belt Railway of Chicago or other terminal operations.  By definition, the heritage of its lines would convey "dual citizenship" ancestry to both CSX and NS.

PRR, parts of the St. Louis line went to CSX.

B&M/PanAm on the Hoosic Tunnel line.

 

Good stuff, MidlandMike! Thanks!

I wonder if the Shared Assets geneology of those lines might generate others.

I am not that familiar with them but might Jersey Central, Erie, and Lackawanna be contenders? Maybe Lehigh Valley? Penn Central?

With CSX putting out a series of Heritage Units, in the vein of Norfolk Southern, how many "Dual Citizenship" Heritage Units could we end up with?

What I mean by that is heritage units on both railroads for the same fallen flag.

Just for fun.

I bet there could be quite a list.

I'll lead off with these examples:

Conrail (already on both CSX and NS)

New York Central
