CSX Pares Intermodal Lanes

Trains Magazine on-line article re: CSX "right-sizing" its hub and spoke intermodal network with elimination of many low volume lanes to/from SE US:

The eye chart depicting changes impacting SE US origins/destinations:

In some cases, scheduled manifest trains will support remaining intermodal lanes.

They have pulled away from major source points in the west and SW like Santa Teresa(EL Paso),Tucson(Nogales) Tacoma WA(ports of Tacoma,Seattle).
Most likely to get to CSX destinations will need a drayage move in Chicago between the western RR's and CSX IM yard there. :P

Certain container"Pools" have fixed routing to CSX,that would include "CSXU" marked containers.
