As some of you may know, CSX has sold over 100 locomotives, reviewed 8000 miles of track for sale, closed 8 or more hump yards, and layed off thousands of employees. Is the once almighty railroad slowly going downhill to the point where it will go out of business?

maybe you should check out their stock value trend for the past few years.

Short answer: CSX appears to want to run as lean as possible today to get a better stock price.

Harrison's death and 2716 related stuff speak otherwise

Let’s hope for a 2021 Steam Program with 2716!

According to a TRAINS Newswire article yesterday, MARC & VRE have seen a drop in their on-time performance and they are blaming it on increased CSX traffic. Here's the link, but if you're not a TRAINS subscriber you may not be able to view it due to a paywall.
