The NYS&W to me seems a mere shadow of its former self, back when it was running Sea-Land double stacks as an independent railroad. After CSX and NS jointly bought it, the NYS&W seems to run one daily LD train to/from Binghamton. I can't help to wonder if the CSX/NS buyout was primarily to minimize a competitor serving the NJ/NYC and just keep the NYS&W active enough to avoid regulatory scrutiny.
