The Lockport Subdivision is a railroad line owned by CSX Transportation in the U.S. state of New York. The line runs from Lockport west to a junction with the Niagara Subdivision east of Niagara Falls[1] in Sanborn, New York along a former New York Central Railroad line. At its east end, it interchanges with the Falls Road Railroad and Somerset Railroad.[2][3]

History[edit]

The line opened in 1838 as part of the Lockport and Niagara Falls Railroad.[citation needed] It became part of the New York Central and Conrail through leases, mergers, and takeovers, and was assigned to CSX in the 1999 breakup of Conrail.
