Ohio Central System

The Ohio Central Railroad System is a network of shortline railroads operating in Ohio and western Pennsylvania. Headquartered in Coshocton, Ohio, the system operates 500 miles of track divided among 10 subsidiary railroads. Most of the system's routes were divested from Class I railroads and connect industries to CSX Transportation, Norfolk Southern, and other regionals. Ohio subsidiaries include the Ohio Central (distinct from the collective system), the Columbus & Ohio River, Youngstown Belt, Warren & Trumbell, and the Youngstown & Austintown. The OHCR system was purchased by the Genessee & Wyoming shortline operator in 2008.
