CSXT, New York Central grant CN trackage rights to improve interchanges


CSX Transportation and New York Central Lines L.L.C. recently agreed to grant Canadian National Railway Co. trackage rights to several line segments owned by New York Central and operated by CSXT.


Scattered around Buffalo, N.Y., the segments (totaling 12.8 miles) would enable CN to improve its interchange with South Buffalo Railway Co., Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad Inc., and Norfolk Southern Railway.


The trackage rights also will enable CN to reduce traffic on segments of New York Central's Compromise Branch and Chicago lines.


CSXT and New York Central recently filed a trackage rights exemption with Surface Transportation Board to amend an existing CN agreement.
