There will have to be further Clearance projects for the route to Philadelphia to be double stack capable. Boone Tunnel near Philadelphia springs immediately to mind. Potentially several bridges may need to be revised. Howard Street answers Port of Baltimore's issues for Westward traffic.

There's a lot more potential for domestic double stacking on the North-South on the I-95 corridor than there is for international traffic moving out of the port of Baltimore. It would seem that the big new intermodal center to be built at Rocky Mount, NC will be the I-95's version of North Baltimore, OH and that combined with both future DS clearance and ongoing double track projects along stretches of the A-line will really allow CSX to improve its' product and grow its business moving between the Southeast and Northeast.
