The state's the one tagged with responsibility for the engine yard, so other than draining the fuel and taking home all its shop tools and repurposeable equipment CSX doesn't have much to do in the engine yard. Their primary responsibility is dismantling the main yard...knocking down the yard office and the little sheds, pulling up all the rail for scrap, taking down the light towers, etc. Except for what track is needed to access the Grand Junction until the T re-does all the mainline switches they aren't waiting for any other parties before they get started. And they'll probably waste little time when they do...all that scrap rail is worth a pretty good sum to them.
