Key words- Amtrak. You can run special trains under Amtrak's authority wherever it might extend. Host railroad does have some say but not as much as you think. We moved our bilevels south this exact way. All we needed was CSX and NS to decline moving the cars in freight service. It was rather easy and Amtrak is actually very easy to work with.

Now, if it said STEAM powered, then CSX had a change of heart. Otherwise they are just following established agreements.

This in no way belittles the efforts of the historical societt in pulling this off. It still takes a lot of commitment, time, and energy.

But with the recent repaints of the C&O SD40, Chessie U-boat, Clinchfield F and Pennsy Sleeper, CSX has seemed to value their heritage a lot more than in recent years.

I certainly applaud CSX for a nod to their heritage, hence why it warrants a topic on RYPN.

However, I have been continuously amused, if not downright appalled by the shortsightedness those in the railfan community are showing as it relates to what CSX is currently doing to not only the industries it serves but employees as well. In fact, I feel the whole thing is in bad taste given the current state of the company.
