R.J. Corman seeks CSXT, NS track to connect Cleveland Line

R.J. Corman Railroad Co. L.L.C. Aug. 5 filed separate notices of exemption with Surface Transportation Board to acquire, and lease and operate from CSX Transportation 2.16 track miles in Wayne County, Ohio (known as Wooster Industrial Track).

As part of the transaction, the short-line holding company also would acquire by assignment from CSXT incidental overhead trackage rights to 29 miles of Norfolk Southern Railway's line between East Gravel, Massillion and Wooster, Ohio.

The trackage rights would enable R.J. Corman's Cleveland Line — which operates 50 track miles between Warwick and Uhrichsville, Ohio — to connect to a line segment it owns between Massillion and Warwick. Cleveland Line connects with Wheeling & Lake Erie Railway Co., Ohio Central Railroad Inc., CSXT and NS.

R.J. Corman owns and operates 10 short lines in Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, New York and Pennsylvania, and offers railroad construction, material-management and distribution, and derailment services.
