Q: The city of Cincinnati owns the CNO&TP line running from Cincinnati to Chattanooga, Tenn., which Norfolk Southern leases from the city. Does the city of Cincinnati also own and lease yards along the line to NS, or does NS own these yards outright? — Doug Lathrem, Bowling Green, Ky.

A: The city of Cincinnati owns the Cincinnati Southern Railway from Cincinnati to Chattanooga and leases its use to the Cincinnati, New Orleans & Texas Pacific, which is a subsidiary of Norfolk Southern. According to a source close to Norfolk Southern, outparcels (which includes yards) along the route may be owned by either NS or Cincinnati Southern — the name of the railroad company that the city of Cincinnati owns. Only a review of property records would confirm ownership of the parcels. — Tyler Trahan
