CSX is a far better place to work than NS.
We make up a lot of phrases that "CSX" stands for. But (and I hope I'm not jinxing anything here), we don't deserve the nickname "Chemical Spill Experts"....

I bought a Kodak DX 6490 to replace my point and shoot film camera and I'm a big fan. (It has been replaced by the DX 7590, 5 megapixel, for the same price). I would highly recommend it.

I took my Nikon FE SLR and my Kodak 6490 digital to Folkston last week. I still find the Nikon easier to shoot trains, but I liked the results from the digital better on the overcast day. Nearly...

I think the all time winner for horrible patch jobs has to be Conrail. They didn't even apply a logo, just random "CR" initials. For those of us who were fans of the predecessor roads, that was...
