First as a unionized employee, and later as a member of the management team, I spent the entire Conrail era (1 976-99) within the confines of the Central Region. With eleven prior years in the employment of the Erie Lackawanna Railroad/Railwayinthe same area, onewould think authoring a photo history of Conrail's Central Region would be an easytask. That is not the case. Even forthe long-time railroader, the Central Region was confusing. It only lasted from April 1, 197b until January 1, 1989. Originally, the Central Region was headquartered at Pennsylvania Station in downtown Pittsburgh. In December 1978, it was moved to a business park known as Foster Plaza in suburban Greentree. We're not going to cover the former Southern Region territory, which was merged into the Central Region fora short period. On New Year's Day, 1989, Conrail's regional structurewas abolished and each division reported directly to the System Operations Bureau in Philadelphia. This change removed a complete layer of management: the regions. Most of the former Central Region territory became the new Pittsburgh Division. We'll address this in future volumes.
