Thoughts On Connecticut Freight Railroads


In a great attempt to bring back the capabilities of the old New Haven Railroad, the State of Connecticut has developed a STATE RAIL PLAN:

The Providence & Worster (former NY and New Haven Railroad) and the New England Central(Central Vermont/Canadian National) are owned by the same company, Genesee and Wyoming. The P & W , successor to the New Haven Railroad , is alive and appears to be doing very well.

Most of the smaller Connecticut Railroads are doing as well as expected. The Housatonic Railroad (coming from New York State) needs help once they enter Connecticut. A plan is developing to bring that about:

Aside from all of this, there are several comments recently on CSX.

Maybe CSX needs to sell out in Western Connecticut? Put ownership with P&W or Housatonic?

What are your thoughts?
