How many movements are north/south on the former CR line on the east side of the highway there?

Last I checked, I think there were 2-6 daily, before the merger, upwards of 12, or so. Most traffic for Columbus uses the Columbus Sub a few miles to the east. This was Conrail's only north/south line into Toledo but it's one of essentially 3 for CSX so they don't need it for very much.

For the record, the 2 lines cross at Galatea, just east of N. Baltimore.

There are still eight trains a day on the Toledo Branch Sub, but most seem to run at night.
