Norfolk Southern’s (NS) Toledo Intermodal Terminal (MPH) is one of five intermodal terminals in Ohio. Two intermodal terminals are located in Cincinnati, one in Columbus and one in Cleveland. MPH is also referred to as Airline Junction Yard.

According to the 2013 National Transportation Atlas Database, the facility is located on the Chicago Line Subdivision. The NS Detroit District Subdivision also accesses this facility. Amtrak has trackage rights over tracks running through the terminal. The terminal is across from the University of Toledo’s South Campus.

In 2012 NS completed a $12.4 million expansion to this terminal. The idea for expansion did not come from NS but from Toledo’s Mayor’s office. The Evaluating the Economic Impacts of Expanded Truck-Rail Intermodal Capacity in Northwest Ohio: Airline Junction study was the impetus for regional freight-related business support. The Joint Intermodal Task Force (JITF) approached NS with the study’s results.
