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...

The section of CSX I live along has 50 freight trains and 8 Amtraks a day. I consider it a slow day if I only see 10 or so trains. Plus, as far as I'm conserned, you cannot beat the variety of power CSX sends through here. I never know what will come down the tracks next. Its great.
