CSX to Keep Route of Boston Section of LSL

CSX plans to retain ownership of a route in Massachusetts used by the Boston section of the Lake Shore Limited.

“I can definitively say that this line is not for sale,” a CSX spokesman told the Albany (New York) Times Union.

The comment came following a report on the website of Trains magazine that the former Boston & Albany line between Albany and Worcester, Massachusetts, was among several that the railroad was considering selling or leasing.

CSX has acknowledged launching a review of its route network “to be sure our assets are maximized for efficiency and add value to the company’s long-term business needs,” the spokesman told the Times-Union.

The Trains report had reported that up to 8,000 miles could be sold or leased, but indicated that it was unlikely that not all routes said to be under review would be ditched by the Class 1 railroad.
