Is CSX cursed?

Huntington and HH's plan

It's funny too because they swear we can relocate to a nearby shop. Thats what they tell the media. Funny though because Russell had to lay off too. Even better that it wasn't posted on the gateway. Greedy people make me sick. HH is going to bring... read more

Really? You believe him?

Claims everything is improving and customers are happy. LOL I personally know of loaded auto trains that have been sitting in sidings halfway to hell, because they have no crews available to run them. I've never seen that before.
