I would have said the T owns to framingham but i wouldnt argue it to any extent. That was just my understanding. Maybe we should do a little investigation and find out what the property lines are.

There have been strong rumors over the last year or so that CSXT wants to get rid of everything east of Worcester, and if they did the MBTA would probably want to but it more than anybody else. :wink:

CSX is getting rid of lots of track. THey are getting rid ov everything south of Orlando,FL, and they may even get rid of everything south of Jacksonville, including the Bone Valley.

Anyway, enough about Florida, but i have heard that too. I just wonder, are we gonna see the branches become shortlines??? Also, would they still run to Beacon Park, or are they actually trying to pull out of Boston???
Hoping for a rebirth of the Screamer fleet.

They want to ditch all the branch lines and everything east of Worcester. But this should be discussed in the CSXT forum, as this thread is starting to wonder astray. :wink:
