JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CSX worked with its customers
in 2012 to locate 105 new or expanded facilities on its eastern rail network
or on connecting short lines. These projects represent an investment by those
customers of more than $3.2 billion and will ultimately create over 4,200 jobs
among shippers in more than a dozen states.

"These industrial facilities are expected to generate 162,000 carloads of new
rail traffic in future years," said Clark Robertson, assistant vice
president-regional development. "The 2012 results were especially significant
in the energy markets, such as new ethanol and crude oil terminals, natural
gas processing facilities and drilling supply locations. In addition, low
natural gas pricing and abundant supply are prompting renewed manufacturing
interest in the U.S. and specifically in markets served by CSX."

Rail customers considering a new manufacturing location can access
