Finally, what are the real reasons for the curious present weed grown
abandonment of use of the tracks connecting CSX and NS across Gilbert?

Mergers probably had a great deal to do with CSX no longer going to
Gilbert Yard. Pre-1959, VGN had several option of routing coal to
the midwest -- NYC via Dickinson, N&W or C&O via the Gilbert
gateway and probably others. Now with the disposition of Conrail, much
of the coal can route to destination on a one-line haul. Why divide the
revenue ?
