Some railroad unions have had their ability to strike restricted, in the event that federal regulators approve the proposed Conrail merger.
A federal judge in Roanoke imposed that restriction yesterday.
The U-S Surface Transportation Board is expected to rule June 8th on the plan by Norfolk Southern and C-S-X to buy and carve up Conrail.
Judge James Turk ruled that rail unions cannot strike for a year.
The ruling is intended to stop the unions from trying to block the Conrail takeover if they don't like some of the terms imposed by federal regulators.

The roads loop past farms, through villages -- where business owners hope tourists will stop and shop.
And for those who want to build on these rolling hills, there are no zoning laws.
But the locals might welcome a country store more than a factory.
