Connecticut Southern Railroad

Overview

The Connecticut Southern Railroad (CSO) operates 42 miles of owned or leased track in Connecticut and Massachusetts. The CSO interchanges with the CNZR, CSX and PAS. Although the CSO covers only 42 miles, it provides critical interchanges with CSX for customers moving steel beams, construction debris, lumber, malt liquors and pulpboard.

Several major recycling companies are located on the CSO and are dependent upon this road for movement of material to and from their facilities. The CSO provides transportation of these materials economically and in bulk for easier handling by these recycling companies.
