Ohio short line to acquire, lease track from CSXT


Last week, the Surface Transportation Board approved the Columbus & Ohio River Railroad Co.'s (CUOH) plan to acquire and lease from CSX Transportation a total of 120 track miles in Ohio.

CUOH will acquire about 38 track miles between Columbus and Newark, and lease about 82 track miles between Cambridge and Mt. Vernon. CSXT also will assign to the 160-mile short line incidental trackage rights to a 1.5-mile line in Zanesville operated by Ohio Southern Railroad Inc.

CUOH and Ohio Southern are owned and operated by Ohio Central Railroad Inc., which owns eight other short lines operating in Ohio and Pennsylvania.
