I've never had a clear understanding of how that joint run works, so I would appreciate any clarification/explanations you can offer.

Also, it is possible that I misread the intent of the statement I saw-- it's possible that these are railroads experiencing major traffic due to frac sand, rather than a joint train between them, or it may just be between a couple of them, such as coming off the R&N (TMSL), to the Lehigh Railway up to WCOR. If you haven't heard anything on your side, it may be that the Lehigh Railway was mistakenly called the LVRR, which I interpreted to be the Lycoming Valley. I will certainly update with better info if I see it.
Well, every railroad that I know of is benefiting from gas drilling projects in the NE.
