CSX Toledo Terminal employees honored with dual commendations

(Source: CSX press release, March 24, 2014)

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- CSX Toledo Terminal employees at Stanley Yard, Walbridge Yard and the Toledo Docks were recently honored by the Ohio House of Representatives and the Ohio Senate for Stanley Yard’s centennial birthday and the team’s impressive safety record. State Senator Randy Gardner and State Representative Tim Brown presented the dual commendations.

“It is an honor to salute the employees of Stanley Yard as they celebrate their centennial year. CSX has played an important role in our local economy for decades and we look forward to many more successes in the future,” said Rep. Brown.

Combined, the Toledo Terminal handles about 3,000 carloads of freight each day, forming an integral part of the regional economy’s backbone. Stanley Yard handles mostly mixed freight, Walbridge Yard moves predominantly auto freight, and the Toledo Docks handle vessel and rail transfers of coal and iron ore.

“A strong and vibrant CSX helps maintain and build jobs in our region and state,” Senator Gardner added.

Stanley Yard’s commitment to safety, customers, and community service has been recognized across the region. Stanley Yard’s employees celebrated the centennial combined with their two-year, injury-free milestone last year. A strong community presence in Northern Wood County, Stanley Yard employees participate in the annual MS Society Bike to the Bay fundraiser, leading the way in team fundraising for the last two years. In addition, employees were among the first to respond in the aftermath of tragic 2010 tornado that hit Lake Township. CSX volunteers donated time and resources toward the clean-up and rebuilding efforts in the weeks and months following the disaster.

“We have a great team at the Toledo Terminal, in both safety and service,” said Rob Burkett, terminal superintendent. “They are upholding the strong rail tradition in this part of the country on behalf of CSX, our customers, and our communities.”

Built by the Toledo & Ohio Central railroad, Stanley Yard changed hands several times over the years with railroad mergers, from New York Central, Penn Central, Conrail and finally CSX, which acquired it as part of its share of the Conrail acquisition in the late 1990s.
