Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Belt Railway of Chicago, headquartered in Chicago, is the largest switching terminal railroad in the United States. It is co-owned by six Class I railroads BNSF Railway, Canadian National Railway, Canadian Pacific Railway, CSX Transportation, Norfolk Southern Railway, and Union Pacific Railroad each of which uses the switching and interchange facilities of the BRC. Owner lines and other railroads bring their trains to the Belt Railway to be separated, classified, and re-blocked into new trains for departure. The BRC also provides rail terminal services to approximately 100 local manufacturing industries. The company employs about 520 people, including its own police force. Its president is currently Patrick J. O'Brien.show more
