After Train Festival 2009 I was rummaging around the Buckeye State and was intrigued by the fate of the Toledo & Ohio Central. In the ConRail breakup the line south of Columbus went to NS and the rest to CSX. The northern part is paralleled to the west by the CSX's former B&O and to the east by CSX's former Hocking Valley. If only for the sake of the illusion of competition why didn't all of the former T&OC go to NS? It would also seem an ideal relief for NS' Sandusky line. This is purely railfan speculation, there are no wrong answers and all thoughts are welcome.
