BALTIMORE AND OHIO RAILROAD ORGANIZATION

Here is how the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad system was organized in 1948.

NEW YORK TERMINAL REGION

EASTERN REGION

CENTRAL REGION

WESTERN REGION

Notes:
1. The Baltimore and Ohio had trackage rights over portions of the Central Railroad of New Jersey and the Reading Company but they were not part of the B&O system.
2. The Baltimore and Ohio had trackage rights over portions of the Western Maryland Railway but it was not part of the B&O and C&O until the Chessie System era.
3. The Baltimore and Ohio had trackage rights over the C. R. B. & Lbr. Co. Railroad but it was not part of the B&O system.
4. The Lorain, Ashland and Southern Railroad and West Virginia Short Line were listed in the Wheeling Division section but not listed in either the General Outline or Corporations sections of Form 6. They may or may not have been part of the B&O system.
5. The Cumberland and Pennsylvania Railroad Company was not listed in the Corporations section of Form 6.
6. The Baltimore and Ohio had trackage rights over portions of the Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad but it was not part of the B&O system. At the time it was owned by the New York Central. Later it became part of CSX.
7. The Toledo and Cincinnati Railroad was listed in the Ohio Division section but not listed in either the General Outline or Corporations sections of Form 6. It may or may not have been part of the B&O system.
8. It is assumed that the Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Western Railroad Company is correct. The Form 6 that was used is not clear, however, a previous owner of the original copy had written C. I. & W. in the margins and that makes sense.
