JACKSONVILLE, Fla., April 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reflecting CSX’s ongoing commitment to being a good neighbor in the communities it serves, the company was recognized as one of Corporate Responsibility Magazine’s Best Corporate Citizens for 2016, with a ranking of #47 in the company’s fourth appearance on the list.

  1. Lol, no one has obviously looked at north baltimore Ohio…the trucks are destroying our roads and you have to drive 20 miles to go around the %@#&)$g trains that park from north baltimore all the way to deshler…two county lines of trains, and they blow their damn horns like it’s funny. I live 15 miles away and the vicious light that comes from that monstrosity, and now hazmat materials are going to be going through north baltimore…yea really community friendly!

  2. Not to mention the delays in emergency service because the trains park across 2 counties…the Henry county sheriff filed a complaint to the public utilities commission, but that went no where because csx has deep pockets and it doesn’t matter if someone dies because squads can’t get to them…yea real good corporate citizens

  3. Sometimes it’s best to keep comments to yourself until you know all the facts in order to keep from looking like an incompetent a$! First thing is as for ruining roads csx has given money to repair worsened roads to the nearby townships including Jackson in which you live, second as for emergency response it has minimal effect on response time do to mutual aid agreements for surrounding areas/departments. Third I live a mile away and have never had issues with lights or noise it’s almost like it’s not even there. And as for haz mat have you not noticed truck drivers carrying the same things, farmers, and other businesses. Aside from the pi$! And moans I feel csx is doing a great job in what they are doing and thank them for what they have done and look forward to see what’s in their future
