they should not rely on CSX, which might just decide that NYSW is a "boutique business" not servicing.

I am fairly certain the reason no other operator is brought in is NYS&W does own the physical track structure, however not the land under it.

quite the argument on Facebook today about this, apparently they don't want to fix it, they want to keep the customers captive to CSX interchange. Doesn't make much sense to me but wouldn't surprise me either.

The NYS&W operated in Utica on Feb 25th under conditions warranting a blizzard declaration by the National Weather Service.

Here's a video featuring the hardy crew of UT-1 switching Matt's Brewery and Di-Highway under very adverse wintry conditions:
