Description

Southern Ontario, Canada is rich in ore deposits of many kinds. The Canada Southern Railway (CASO), of southwestern Ontario, was founded in 1868, leased to the Micigan Central Railroad (MCR) for 99 years, then subleased to the New York Central Railroad (NYC) for 999 years. NYC's successors, Penn Central (1968) and Conrail (1976), later exercised control. In 1985, the Canadian National Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway jointly purchased the former CASO from Conrail in order to acquire the Michigan Central Railway Tunnel under the Detroit River and the Michigan Central Railway Bridge at Niagara Falls, two key components for future mainline rail traffic between Canada and the USA. During the second half of the 20th century, CASO leased a fleet of hoppers from the PLE, repainted and refurbished them with heavy-duty trucks, and began hauling Ontario's copius ores to the steel producing centers of the Great Lakes region.
