Richmond- based C-S-X will spend upwards of four- billion- dollars for the rest of Conrail.
It gets new connections in Boston, St. Louis, New York, and Philadelphia.
Norfolk Southern and C-S-X will jointly operate Conrail assets in other terminals.
Even with these bitter rivals in agreement, the deal has a long way to go.
The finer details must still be worked out, and federal regulators who want to make sure competition is preserved could take close to a year to approve the Conrail carve- up.
