I hope this is the appropriate place for this thread... Looking at the success of so many regional railroads today, do you guys think The Rock’s old “Choctaw Route” would make it as a Class II today if the unused portions hadn’t been allowed to deteriorate to their current conditions? It seems there are quite a few miles of the route that are still making money for various operators. On the other hand, I’ve read that much of the western portions of the line went through some very remote country that would probably offer little revenue today. How is the terrain where it crosses the Arkansas/Oklahoma state line? I know much of that area is pretty mountainous, and I wonder how well the “Choctaw” was engineered through that location. Had the “Choctaw” survived as a regional, it would put it in size similar to Montana Rail Link; Rapid City, Pierre & Eastern; etc. What kind of traffic do you think would primarily exist if it were a Class II? Lots of grain I’d bet. Maybe even some regional intermodal between Memphis and Oklahoma City? It’s fun to speculate.
