BNSF's ex-CB&Q Denver Line DVD
The former Chicago, Burlington, and Quincy’s line to Denver west of Lincoln, Nebraska, now part of BNSF’s Chicago to Denver line, was the heart and sole of the Burlington Route. Always a favorite of Burlington executives, this line hosted the Burlington’s famous Denver and California Zephyr passenger trains and the Chicago to Denver hot shot freight trains, and was among the first lines on the Burlington to get centralized traffic control over sixty years ago. In spite of the favoritism shown it by Burlington officials, the CB&Q’s Denver line west of Lincoln was never a major freight route and hosted as many passenger trains as freight trains as late as 1960. Today this line still hosts Amtrak’s California Zephyr and carries more freight business than ever. More freight trains traverse this line today than anytime since at least World War II.

NS Valley Line north of Front Royal, VA DVD
In June of 1988 Conrail began shifting its interchange with Norfolk Southern in the Northeast from Potomac Yard in Washington, D. C. to Hagerstown, Maryland.

In 1999 NS acquired rights on the former Conrail Lurgan branch north of Hagerstown that connected NS to their new Conrail trackage at Harrisburg.
