Is there a reason that this needs to be separate from CSX Transportation?

I've requested that this be merged into the "History" section of CSX Transportation, since it seems to relate little more than a bit of corporate history. Mangoe 14:58, 11 July 2006 (UTC)
They're two separate corporations. (This is the holding corp.) I'd say they should be separate MrHudson 08:26, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

I don't see any reason to keep it as a separate article either. For all intents and purposes, CSX Transportation is CSX Corporation. This entry just provides a little more detail into the parent company and briefly mentions a few of their other ventures, all of which have to do with transportation anyway.--Macmedic892 15:22, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

I am also in favor of merging the articles, since CSX behaves more like a corporation than a railroad. The company would spin off it's rail holdings in an instant if given the chance.-- MakeChooChooGoNow 16:24, 7 November 2006 (UTC)

CSX Corporation was formed in 1980, but there was no CSX Transportation until 1986. For six years, CSX Corporation was a holding company that owned several railroad companies. --NE2 04:36, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

Litigation on derivatives[edit]

In the year now drawing to a close, CSX Corp. has been involved in some ground-breakinbg litigation over financial derivatives and their significance in re: proxy contests and the securities regulatory system. Here's one source for that statement: http://www.financialweek.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080921/REG/309229998/1015/TOC

Anyway, I think there should definitely be a discussion of that litigation and its significance here, ans that this in itself is a good reason to keep this article separate from the article about the railroad. The corporation as a financial entity is one subject, its operations are another. --Christofurio (talk) 16:41, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
