CSX has completed their first sale of trackage. The Decatur Subdivision, Danville Secondary, and the Paris Industrial Track are now in the hands of Decatur & Eastern Ilinois Railroad, a WATCO subsidiary. ... _illinois/

This is most likely a good thing for CSX, as they no longer have to operate those lines while receiving a majority of interchange traffic from the new railroad. Only wonder what lines will come next.
Next stop, Willoughby
