The AW is not looking to sell or lease this line as it is a key part of our system. But depending on how many trains you're planning on running, you could have trackage rights.

*To further clarify; the line isn't very busy but it has a few high priority intermodals that can't be delayed and the line isn't built to accomodate a high amount of traffic as sidings are far and few between.

We were planning on running alot of coal and grain traffic on the line and maybe more but we picked up the Peavine so we probably wouldnt need the line. We would like to interchange with you at Cincinnati if you would want to

Yeah that would require some major upgrades. Sure we can interchange in Cincinnati.

Due to my family taking a summer long trip to Alaska and a lack of internet access. I will be pulling the AW out of the group. In the group, all of the AW lines revert to their current real world owners or state of abandonment.

The Appalachian Western turned 30 years old on July 1st, 2013. To commemorate this nine SD70ACe from the 4200 number series are being painted into heritage schemes by our Hagerstown, MD shops. The first three have been outshopped with the frist being Chesapeake Western Railway inspired 4200.
