Last week’s show – CSX is big!

Friday, August 19th, 2011

Last week we were pleased to present a detailed program about the new CSX intermodal in N. Baltimore, now an inland port. Standing next to a shipping container at the intermodal hub, Jackie can show you the perspective on the size of these containers.

This week’s show – No more cussing at railroad crossings!

Friday, August 12th, 2011

Finally after years of talking about the facility, this Saturday on A Firm Foundation we are going to feature the NEW CSX intermodal facility in N. Baltimore, Wood County Ohio.

Joining us live from CSX is Rusty Orben. Rusty is the chief spokesperson for CSX, and it will be a great time learning about the CSX of the 21st. century, the future revolution in shipping cargo, and an official “inland” port, now located just west of N. Baltimore. Jackie and I attended the official open house dedication back on June 28th and it was a feeling you’d expect to get at a facility outside New York City or Chicago.

Tune in at 9:00 am. to AM 1470 or after 11:00 am. you can go to to hear a podcast at your convenience.
