We have all been hearing how CSX and NS seem to be falling appart at the
seams w/ this CR split up. From what I can see things are getting worse.
First towns in NJ were complaining because trains were left idiling for near
24 hour stretches due to a lack of crews. Also due to the fact that a train
hasn't run on time for days UPS pulled all its traffic off trains and put
them on trucks untill the problems go away. The Philadelphia water
treatment system is now taking a hit. They get chlorine delivered right to
the plants via tank car. They even keep a 30 day supply, but now due to
late shippments their supply is down to 9 days. I just got this message off
the Conrail e-mail list.
The Philly Water Dept (PWD) chlorine problem is critical. The PWD has
already begun trucking gas into the Baxter water plant so that operations
can continue. A water department official went to Conrail's Frankfort Jct.
looking for the tank cars and said that the yardmaster was nearly in tears.
Apparently, the tank cars come out of Jones Chemical in New York state and
are normally routed down to Frankfort Jct. for delivery. When PWD called
the chemical company, the only information that the company could get from
the RR's was that the cars had gone somewhere in Massachusetts, they
thought! It's starting to look as if I'll be able to see my own Penn

I was just wondering what you all think the chanches of a CSX/NS self
destruction is and what would they be reorganized into? Also would anybody
WANT to see CSX and NS go down the crapper and if so what would you want in
