CSX Railroad History

The CSX Railroad is wholly-owned subsidiary of CSX Corporation. CSX Transportation is the operating arm of CSX Corp. that oversees the railway. The railroad was the result of a 1986 merger between Seaboard System Railroad and Chessie System, Inc. Consequently, CSX is young compared to most rail companies. The "CSX" name came from company lawyers in need of something to call the new company during merger talks. They came up with "CSX" in lieu of CSC & CSM, as those were already taken. C stands for Chessie, S for Seaboard and X, the multiplication symbol, was intended to represent the company as "so much more." CSX also grew by absorbing other railroads-namely, the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, and a joint absorption of Consolidated Rail Corp. with Norfolk Southern.
