Conrail's Ashland Ave yard was Conrail's primary yard in the Chicago area.  While mostly used for intermodal trains, this yard originated several transfer trains and local jobs.  It was also referred to as the "CJ" or Chicago Junction based on the name of a predecessor company that originally built the yard.
Located northwest of Pittsburgh along the Ohio river, this former PRR yard remained the largest railroad yard in the world from the time of it's expansion in the 1950's until 1980.

Located on the west bank of the Susquehanna River, across from Harrisburg, Enola Yard was a key Conrail facility. It served as a main classification yard located at the convergence of a number of lines.
