I think this has been discussed before but is worth talking about again in light of recent developments with NS. Industry publications have had recent articles concerning Norfolk Southern's moves to get their operating ratio back under 70.
Pruning branch lines is one of the steps being taken to achieve this goal. With that said, what is the possibility that NS would sell or lease all or part of the Meadville Line to WNY&P?

Its all a possibility.  
 
One thing we need to do is separate our "railfan"view from that of a corporate accountant.  The lines sold off over the next few years by NS might make perfect sense, or very little.  
 
I do know WNYP has approached NS about running to to Shenango and as far as Ferrona in the past, so this might play into the decision.
