New service: Canada Toronto GO will be expanded to just outside of Buffalo. (Just across the border.) New station Buffalo, NY is in finding mode. Long meeting on U-Tube. If you have trouble falling asleep. Very early in the process. Completion of the Empire Corridor Tier One Environmental Impact Statement. No action reported. Plan is due in September if not done the State will give the Feds back 4 millions. A report of a meeting in which NYSDOT yelled at CSXT, and CSXT got up and left. Lobbyists Patricia Lynch Associates was just happy not having NY to cut the rail budget. NY state general had a 10% cut in most areas. CAF more cars this month, a bunch of dinners. Don't hold your breath type of discussion. Ramp up talk of the idea of rail service from Bingham NY via Scranton to NYP. One thinks Buffalo to Bingham to Albany would be good. But the talk is Bingham to Scranton then onto New York City. Very early chatter. NARP is pushing talk to your congress critters staff in person or on the phone. Push Transportation to the staff. Almost 50% of CSX Mow budget in rail and tie work is in New York. This might result in a train each way, getting cancelled again this year during the shorter construction period. Shorter than last years train off. .
