Conrail was once the primary Class I railroad in the Northeastern United States from 1976-1999. Conrail was made by the Federal Government that bought out bankrupt railroad companies like Penn Central & Erie-Lackawanna. After the merger break-up from 1997-1999, most equipment and routes are merged and separated into two east coast railroads, CSX Transportation and Norfolk Southern.
