History[edit]

South of Dayton, the Toledo Subdivision was opened by the Cincinnati, Hamilton and Dayton Railroad in 1851.[3][4] Later that decade in 1858, the Dayton and Michigan Railroad opened, continuing the line to Toledo.[5] The lines passed to the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad and CSX through leases and mergers.
