Kinda sorta. CSX invested millions to upgrade the line so they could use it as a relief valve for routes into Cincinnati. L&I owns the line, but CSX owns the improvements (ballast, ties, CWR, new bridges) and has exclusive trackage rights.

CSX Crews ? CSX Power or L&I Power ?

CSX trackage rights, so CSX crews and power. The few crew changes I've seen seem to be all CSX crews. I haven't heard anything about L&I hiring more crews to handle this traffic.
