Why rathole?

It is called that by the numerous tunnels and deep cuts that runs from Emory Gap, TN, to Danville, KY. TVSRR 00:21, 23 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Why a redirect?[edit]

Why is the information in this article getting moved into the Norfolk Southern article? slambo 01:26, July 14, 2005 (UTC)

Further discussion should be placed on the Norfolk Southern talk page to keep all the comments in one place. slambo 11:00, July 15, 2005 (UTC)

Why Not Redirect to Cincinnati Southern?[edit]

Since Cincinnati, New Orleans and Texas Pacific is only a sub leaser of the Cincinnati Southern Railway to Norfolk Southern why is this fact not just a foot note in the Cincinnati Southern entry? CNOTP does not own the right of way, they did not build it and have not operated it in living memory. I suspect the answer is that the name CNOTP has stuck only because that is who Norfolk Southern sub-leases it from.

One of the great omissions in this article is the lines which CNOTP did operate other than the CS while it was a real operating railroad before it leases it's lines to Southern. There is little to let one know that CNOTP operated other lines and was once a 'real' railroad. I would expect to find it's date of creation and the date it ceased operating and became nothing but a leasing company.Corumplex (talk) 03:47, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

This sounds like a proposal to split this article into two: Cincinnati, New Orleans and Texas Pacific Railway to discuss all the railway's historical operating lines, and Cincinnati Southern Railway to discuss the present railway. – Minh Nguyễn 💬 05:40, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
