- Recently I've seen some non-CSX locos on the old Conrail line. I saw a
group of UP locos near Rotterdam and I've seen several NS locos near
Amsterdam. Are they part of CSX also?
- If you want to see some depressing photos, check out George Elwoods
Fallen Flag site under 2 May or CSX to see the Stanley Yard in Toledo,
Ohio that CSX has decided to close up.
- I heard this, is it true? I keep seeing that NS Stack Train coming through theMagic Triangle in the afternoon. I guess that's what I have to look forward to.I've been asked to leave CPR property recently, I hear that NS REALLY doesn'tlike trespassers (a.ka. Railfans)!Gino-----Original Message-----Gino- Looks like you wont see much CP traffic any more up your way,soon

- CSX improvement reflects higher rates
Rate increases helped propel CSX to improved earnings in last year's
final quarter. Net earnings from continuing operations were $159 million,
up 42% from the 2003 quarter. Surface transportation (rail and
intermodal) operating income was $315 million, up 32%. The operating
ratio was 85.0%, an improvement of 1.8 points. An 8.4% increase in
revenue was produced by a 0.5% increase in volume and a 7.9% increase in
revenue per carload.
CSX Chairman, President, and CEO Michael J. Ward commented: "In the
fourth quarter, the rail network showed signs of improving fluidity as
the company worked to fine-tune the new operating plan that was put in
place in the third quarter. The leadership of CSX remains optimistic
about the operating plan and the opportunity it holds for the company
