CSX would benefit monetarily and everyone else would get their operation going. It's not like that yard is being used. Better than having it just waste away, no?That's not how railroads win customers. They force capitulation by the customer and the other line by never making concessions on their carefully negotiated paper barriers. If the customer's needs are serious enough they and their carrier of origin will figure it out.
