The best is the Ohio Central and all it's subsidiaries. The OC System owns over 300+ miles of track in East-Central Ohio and Western Pennsylvania.

How shall the "best" be determined?? Financial status...operational ratios, safety, or will it be a free for all where everyone says there favorite railroad is the best? I think this subject has been covered before...
