It appears CSX is scaling back operations at their North Baltimore facility. Media Partner WTOL-11 reports the company plans to head in a new direction. CSX has already started diverting traffic from the hub.

The $175 million inter-modal rail yard opened in 2011. CSX finished an expansion of the facility in 2015. It currently employs 300 people.

Trade publication Trains Magazine reports the company does not plan to end operations in North Baltimore. CSX Spokesman Rob Doolittle tells the magazine, “We are reviewing our train plan at the North Baltimore terminal to identify opportunities to provide better service to our intermodal customers.”
