Any new rumors regarding the Syracuse to Massena line?

Given the way that CSX is reinstating dropped trains and reopening hump yards (Radnor), one might wonder how long some of the lines currently for sale might stay on the market.

I'm sure the vulture investors are wringing their hands with glee at the prospect of further income, but cooler minds might prevail.

Several line sales have been announced. Anyone heard any rumors about this line? Might not take much longer to hear what its immediate fate will be.

A northbound just started up with two NS units leading. That should make for some fun in the rumor mill.

I never did see the NS units come back but Sunday morning a BNSF came in.

I don't follow the traffic that much in the St. Lawrence. But, this morning, Saturday, July 21, I was in Adams and saw a bunch of flat cars headed South over the road and just figured they were on the rear of whatever the southbound run thru is numbered this week. Well, I headed down to Mannsville and lo and behold, along came two Kansas City Southern Units leading an empty train down from Ft Drum with a mix of DODX and TTX flats with four and six wheel trucks. The flats with six wheels had a max load cap of 301,0000 pounds. The KCS units were very new, spotless, and looked beautiful in the morning sun headed south thru the cornfields south of Lacona. Of course, I didn't have a camera, but those units were spotless and shining in the sun southbound.
