The New Castle Subdivision is a railroad line owned and operated by CSX Transportation in the U.S. states of Pennsylvania ond Ohio. The line runs from New Castle, Pennsylvania, west to Greenwich, Ohio,[1][2] along a former Baltimore and Ohio Railroad line.[3][4]

At its east end, near Mahoningtown, the New Castle Subdivision becomes the New Castle Terminal Subdivision.[5] Its west end is at the Willard Terminal Subdivision just east of the Greenwich Subdivision junction at Greenwich. Along the way it junctions with the Newton Falls Subdivision at Newton Falls, Ohio, and the CL&W Subdivision at Sterling, Ohio.

History[edit]

The Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Toledo Railroad opened the modern New Castle Subdivision from New Castle to Youngstown, Ohio, and a line continuing west to Valley Junction (near Akron, Ohio) in 1884.
