Rockport Yard sign Cleveland, Ohio Summer 1995

Pictured here is the sign for Conrail's Rockport Yard (back entrance). This sign was located at the west end of Rockport right at the RTA rapid transit Brookpark station parking lot. The west end lead tracks for Rockport Yard join the ex-NYC Chicago Line at what was CP 190 during the Conrail era (now called CP-MAX).

This picture was taken in the summer of 1995. The sign was removed shortly after the split and replaced with a new Norfolk Southern Rockport sign. NS now operates Rockport Yard and the Chicago Line between downtown Cleveland and CP-MAX, all the way to Chicago.
