Hey F40.....rumors rumors and more rumors......thats all the railroad is sometimes. Anyhow, it has been said alot that CSXT wants to get rid of the shortlines and just run mainline trains. I hear a rumor months ago that CSXT wants to sell everything east of Worcester. (The MBTA would probably buy the track / property....except for between just west of Auburndale Station and Back Bay, which is leased from the Mass Turnpike Authority).
Recently the rumor turned into one that suggests that everything east of Selkirk is up for sale.
