      CSXT, Delaware and Hudson Propose Joint Use Arrangement for Improved Service

      JACKSONVILLE, Fla. And CALGARY, Alberta – April 29, 2010 – CSX Transportation, Inc. (CSXT) and Canadian Pacific subsidiary Delaware & Hudson Railway Company (D&H), have filed an application with the Surface Transportation Board (STB) for regulatory approval of a joint use arrangement that improves operating efficiency for both CSXT and D&H.

      In their application, the companies said that the proposed transaction would strengthen the competitive capabilities of both CSXT and D&H by allowing them to operate more efficiently and to offer better service products. They also said it would create a more efficient corridor for traffic moving between eastern Canada and the eastern United States, reducing fuel consumption.

      Under the proposed joint use agreement, CSXT and D&H would use jointly a north-south rail corridor linking the New York City metropolitan area with the international border at Rouses Point. The joint use corridor would include a line operated by the D&H between Rouses Point Junction (near the Canadian border) and Albany, N.Y., and CSXT’s line between Albany and Fresh Pond, N.Y.

      D&H would operate all trains between Saratoga Springs, N.Y., and Rouses Point. Both railroads would conduct their own train operations between Albany and Saratoga Springs. Some of this traffic now moves over CSXT’s Massena Line, which runs from Syracuse, N.Y., to Huntington, Province of Quebec. The joint use arrangement would improve the transit time of this traffic to Albany by more than 45 percent, reduce transit miles by 35 percent and gross ton miles by 442 million.

      The proposed joint use arrangement also calls for CSXT to handle certain D&H freight moving between Albany, N.Y., and the New York City boroughs of The Bronx and Queens, and enables D&H to offer significantly greater frequency of service between Montreal and metropolitan New York City. D&H also will retain previously STB approved trackage rights between Albany and Fresh Pond.

      CSXT and D&H will continue to serve all customers that they serve today, including local shippers on CSXT along the Massena Line. No shipper will lose a rail competitive option as a result of the proposed transaction.

       

       

      CSXT, Delaware & Hudson seek STB approval for joint-use corridor

      ÇSX Transportation and Canadian Pacific subsidiary Delaware & Hudson Railway Co. (D&H) recently filed an application with the Surface Transportation Board seeking approval of a joint-use corridor arrangement that would improve operating efficiency for both railroads.

      CSXT and D&H plan to jointly use a north-south corridor linking the New York City area with an international border at Rouses Point, N.Y. The corridor would include a line operated by D&H between Rouses Point Junction and Albany, N.Y., and CSXT’s line between Albany and Fresh Pond, N.Y.

      D&H would operate all trains between Saratoga Springs, N.Y., and Rouses Point while both railroads would operate between Albany and Saratoga Springs. The joint-use arrangement would cut transit time to Albany by more than 45 percent, and reduce transit miles by 35 percent and gross-ton miles by 442 million, the railroads estimate. In addition, the roads would create a more efficient corridor for traffic moving between eastern Canada and the eastern United States, and reduce fuel consumption, CSXT and D&H officials said in a joint statement.

      The arrangement also calls for CSXT to handle certain D&H freight moving between Albany and New York City’s Bronx and Queens boroughs; D&H to increase service frequency between Montreal and metropolitan New York City; and D&H to retain trackage rights between Albany and Fresh Pond.
