Im sure Alex that you will like the Egyptian trains if you come.Most of the units are EMD.Also you will find alot of friendly crews.And Egyptian Railways said that they will buy 60 new locos so i hope that they are EMD too.

I clicked neither; I'm a shortline kind of person. If I had to chose I would pick NS because I am all for anything dealing with the "Middle Division" aka the NS Pittsburgh Line.

As a photographer, I hate 'em both. NS has the most unimagintive paint scheme of any railroad, and CSX wouldn't dare care to maintain their equipment so it might look good for more than 20 minutes after new.

As a rail fan, NS would get the nod because they are a nicely managed operation (at least these days).

Default CSX or NS

I'd rather have the Reading, Lehigh Valley and Erie Lackawana, but since they haven't been around for 30 years, I'll take NS. There paint schemes are boring, but at least the engines are well maintained.

CSX! More railfan friendly! Better looking! AC6000CW's! More public relations! More open to cab-rides! AC6000CW's! More variety of power! Nicer to shoot! AC6000CW's! Oh, and AC6000CW's!!!

i prefer NS because they are in my area more often (CN St Thomas, NS Trains 327 and 32, although that's rumoured to be ending very soon. But i saw alot of NS and N&W engines growing up, so I prefer them over CSX...

overall I prefer CN, but that's just cause I'm Canadian

If we're voting in the capacity of operations, then NS gets my vote ... hands down. In my nine years of railroading, I've dealth with CSX and NS. CSX has got to be the most poorly managed railroad in the Eastern United States. NS has forgotten more about running a railroad than CSX will ever be able to acheive.
