Steve has a good track record for reactivating rail service, GRLW is a prime example of that. So I am excited to see what all he has planned for AIKR.
Ok, thanks. The way you describe it, it is odd that NS would try to get rid of the line. This type of stuff CSX does all the time (or did anyway), but NS would tend to keep a line around if it's got customers. I am not that familiar with the area, but Aiken if I remember isnt too far from Augusta, I am sure they have a local out of Augusta that served it.

I guess it worked out in their favor.
