Description

Conrail's Port Road Branch ran between Perryville, MD on the Amtrak Northeast Corridor on its east end, and CP-Mary on the Pittsburgh Line at the west. It is composed of the former PRR Columbia and Port Deposit Branch between Perryville, MD and Columbia, PA, the former Atglen & Susquehanna line between Columbia and Shocks Mills, where it crosses the Susquehanna River. On the west side of the Susquehanna, the former A&S joined with the former Northern Central line north into Enola Yard. The line largely saw nocturnal operations, as freight trains operating over Amtrak's Northeast Corridor were subject to a 10PM-6AM window to clear the NEC.
