OK, that makes sense -- NS agrees to play ball in extending passenger
service, but gets the state to pay for other improvements that will
benefit its freight service. Works for me -- I suppose if the right
questions would have been asked by the Roanoke Times rewriter (can't
bring myself to call them reporters any more) then this all would have
been explained. Now about the wye and platform work in Lynchburg . .
