A recent story in the Courier Journal about CSX operations in Louisville have caused several residents to express concerns about railroad operations in Anchorage.
We have verified that CSX will not be running any additional trains on its line through our city, that the 25 mph speed limit in Anchorage will not be increased, and that there will be only one train per day that is longer.
