CSX needs to stop fighting a war they will never win. The south will never rise again.
If you hated the north so much, why did you want it in the first place?

I drove past the grade crossing at Stone rd. which is just east of the bridges that WNYP plans on rehabbing and it looks like they plan on doing this very soon. There were at least 100 ties sitting there already and I'm assuming they are for this project. The old B&SW r.o.w needs to be cleared yet from this end but on the quaint rd. side to the west looks like the r.o.w is clear. It's always good to see a good bridge put back into use. I'll try and get some pictures up on Tuesday. Here is a video of one of the mainline bridge with an Amtrak excursion over it.
