CSX Transportation has rejected a local offer to purchase a rail line it owns in central Tuscarawas County, but area economic development officials still hope that a deal can go through in the future.
...
The rail line begins at the Aleris plant south of Uhrichsville, crosses the east-west Panhandle rail line at Uhrichsville, and then goes through Midvale, New Philadelphia and Dover. It is leased by the R.J. Corman Railroad, which services four customers on the line.

Area officials hoped that by purchasing the line, they could increase freight traffic and use it for excursion trains between the Dennison Railroad Depot Museum and Dover.

Didn't know the CSX had only leased that part of the 'Lower CL&W' to Corman. Thought Corman was the owner.
