I think every instance of “CSX” has been changed to “LSRC” in every post and thread. I’d call that a pretty good April Fools!

OK, so it is April 1. LSRC prez. said big expansion plans are in the works. Maybe they will running at least to GR. We know CSX has (or had) the old PM lines up for sale.

Wasn't going to join in on this yearly April 1st farce but might as well.. Q32901 went west by Howell at 08:58, CSX 5235 single unit with 39 cars. Earlier, Q32801 went east at 07:42 with CSX 5479+7858+8181 with 43 cars. Earlier than that, grain load from Webberville went east with CSX 3042+3064 and 90 cars. D708 turned at Thai-Summit a few minutes ago after setting out two empties and going back west with CSX 4032 single unit. I think it would be great if LSRC went all the way to GRP if the time ever came for this line to change hands.

When I talked to an official at watco a few weeks ago they claimed to be in negotiations with csx for it. I'm sure there's money to be made on the line and gdlk isn't the only one with their eyes in it.
