Yesterday, April 7, I saw an NS grain train come off the GDLK while watching Elkhart live Railcam on Youtube. So not all are going via CSX. I know of only one back in February.

No one ever said they would all go via CSX?

If it goes to a receiver on NS it will go NS. If it goes to a receiver on CSX it will go CSX. Railroads are loathe to interchange if they don't have to and cut contracts to reflect same.
