As a kid many, many years ago my buddies and I dove off that trestle and climbed the steel girders. In the days before we were old enough to drive. All of us grew up in Milligan. Crazy, actually stupid stunts in those days!
Funny, I distinctly remember the website coming to an agreement that CSX was preferred, and you telling James to delete all of your content because you didn't get your way...
It's regrettable that people are allowed to use technology to bully their edits on this website, one of the reasons why I no longer contribute to Bridgehunter.com
The CSX/CSXT argument pops on on Bridgehunter often. Perhaps I can provide a diplomatic comment. The reporting mark may indeed be CSXT but the big name that you see painted on the engines is simply "CSX" and furthermore, if you visit the company website, they have a map and their tracks are called the "CSX Rail Network" in the legend. Perhaps this is like the Interstate highway system in Pennsylvania. The signs say "I-80" but the internal PennDOT designation and the marking on segment markers is SR-80.
My thought is that people who know what CSXT is probably also know what CSX Railroad refers to, but CSXT might confuse the general public who don't even know what a reporting mark is.
'CSX Transportation' is the proper name of the freight rail subsidiary of the CSX Corporation, hence the reporting mark 'CSXT' found on all CSX locomotives and rolling stock.
