I have several friends from SMS who run the branch. NS officials have been up regularly, there is a slide at MP 19.2 that needs to be addressed. Major rehab of the branch is expected summer 2023.

CSX wants to force people to fill the jobs according to their seniority and have been unwilling to back down on this. Basically they want to put everything up for bid at once, and what you win is the railroad you work for. Unions want employees to have the choice of road as they should. It's been a stalemate since they began talking and that's the main reason they overshot October and still aren't doing well figuring it out.Which is a smart move by CSX, because they know that if its done the other way, they will have even more crew shortages than what they have now.
