NOTE 1.    Significant Accounting Policies

Background

CSX Corporation (“CSX” and together with its subsidiaries, the “Company”), based in Jacksonville, Florida, is one of the nation's leading transportation companies.  The Company’s rail and intermodal businesses provide rail-based transportation services including traditional rail service and the transport of intermodal containers and trailers.

CSX’s principal operating company, CSX Transportation, Inc. (“CSXT”), provides a crucial link to the transportation supply chain through its approximately 21,000 route mile rail network, which serves major population centers in 23 states east of the Mississippi River, the District of Columbia and the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec.  CSX Intermodal, Inc. (“Intermodal”), one of the nation’s largest coast-to-coast intermodal transportation providers, is a stand-alone, integrated intermodal company linking customers to railroads via trucks and terminals.

Other entities

In addition to CSXT, the rail segment includes Total Distribution Services, Inc. (“TDSI”), Transflo Terminal Services, Inc. (“Transflo”), CSX Technology, Inc. (“CSX Technology”) and other subsidiaries.  TDSI serves the automotive industry with distribution centers and storage locations, while Transflo provides logistical solutions for transferring products from rail to trucks.  Technology and other support services are provided by CSX Technology and other subsidiaries.

CSX’s other holdings include CSX Real Property, Inc., a subsidiary responsible for the Company’s real estate sales, leasing, acquisition and management and development activities, and CSX Hotels, Inc., a resort doing business as The Greenbrier, located in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.

Basis of Presentation

In the opinion of management, the accompanying consolidated financial statements contain all normal, recurring adjustments necessary to fairly present the following:

 
·
Consolidated income statements for the quarters and nine months ended September 26, 2008 and September 28, 2007;

 
·
Consolidated balance sheets at September 26, 2008 and December 28, 2007; and

 
·
Consolidated cash flow statements for the nine months ended September 26, 2008 and September 28, 2007.

NOTE 1.    Significant Accounting Policies, continued

Beginning in 2008, certain items have been reclassified within the income statement.  These reclassifications include reclassifying all items within other operating income and certain items within other income into the Rail segment.  As a result of this change, CSX consolidated operating income and Surface Transportation operating income are now the same; therefore, the Company no longer reports separate Surface Transportation results. The Rail segment was not materially impacted by these reclassifications. 

Additionally, beginning in 2008 the Company reclassified all non-locomotive fuel related costs previously included in materials, supplies and other into fuel on the Company’s consolidated income statement so that it now includes all fuel used for operations and maintenance.  These amounts were $39 million and $25 million for third quarters 2008 and 2007, respectively, and $114 million and $77 million for nine months 2008 and 2007, respectively.  Certain other prior-year data have been reclassified to conform to the 2008 presentation.

Pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), certain information and disclosures normally included in the notes to the annual financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been omitted from these interim financial statements.  CSX suggests that these financial statements be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and the notes included in CSX's most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, its most recent Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and any Current Reports on Form 8-K.

Fiscal Year

CSX follows a 52/53 week fiscal reporting calendar with the last day of each reporting period ending on a Friday:

 
·
The third fiscal quarters of 2008 and 2007 consisted of 13 weeks ending on September 26, 2008 and September 28, 2007, respectively.

 
·
The nine month periods of 2008 and 2007 consisted of 39 weeks ending on September 26, 2008 and September 28, 2007, respectively.

Except as otherwise specified, references to “third quarter(s)” or “nine months” indicate CSX’s fiscal periods ending September 26, 2008 or September 28, 2007, and references to year-end indicate the fiscal year ending December 28, 2007.

NOTE 1.    Significant Accounting Policies, continued

Comprehensive Earnings

Total comprehensive earnings are defined as all changes in shareholders' equity during a period, other than those resulting from investments by and distributions to shareholders (i.e., issuance of equity securities and distribution of dividends).  Generally, for CSX, that calculation is net earnings plus or minus adjustments for pension and other post-retirement liabilities.  Total comprehensive earnings represents the activity in a period and was $383 million and $414 million for third quarters 2008 and 2007, respectively, and $1.1 billion and $987 million for nine months 2008 and 2007, respectively.  

While total comprehensive earnings is the activity in a period and is largely driven by net earnings in that period, accumulated other comprehensive income or loss (“AOCI”) represents the cumulative balance, net of tax as of the balance sheet date.  For CSX, AOCI is specifically the cumulative balance related to the pension and other post-retirement adjustments and reduced overall equity by $320 million and $325 million as of September 2008 and December 2007, respectively.  

Share Repurchases

In March 2008, CSX announced additional share repurchase authority of approximately $2.4 billion.  This is in addition to the remaining share repurchase authority under the 2007 program of approximately $600 million for a new combined total of $3 billion.  CSX intends to complete all authorized share repurchases by year-end 2009.  While it is not the Company’s intention, the program could be suspended or discontinued at any time, based on market, economic or business conditions.  The timing and amount of repurchase transactions will be determined by CSX’s management based on its evaluation of market conditions, share price and other factors. 

Cumulatively since 2006 under various publicly announced repurchase programs, CSX has repurchased approximately $3.9 billion of its outstanding common stock through the third quarter of 2008.  These repurchases, along with the remaining $2.0 billion available under the authority granted in March 2008, equal nearly $6 billion of CSX common stock expected to be repurchased through 2009.

Total share repurchases under all publicly announced plans were as follows:

 (a)
The difference between shares repurchased on the cash flow statement for nine months 2008 of $1,307 million versus the $1,287 million noted in the table above is $20 million of shares repurchased to fund the Company’s contribution to a 401(k) plan that covers certain union employees.

Retained Earnings

During nine months 2008, CSX's other capital balance was reduced to zero as a result of share repurchases. As noted in Accounting Principles Board (“APB”) Opinion 6, Status of Accounting Research Bulletins, CSX’s other capital balance cannot be negative.  As a result, retained earnings was reduced by $963 million during nine months 2008, which represented share repurchases occurring after the other capital balance had been reduced to zero.  Generally, retained earnings is only impacted by net earnings and dividends.

For additional information regarding discontinued operations, see Note 8, Income Taxes.

(b)
In calculating diluted earnings per share, SFAS 128, Earnings Per Share requires CSX to include the potential shares that would be outstanding if all outstanding stock options were exercised.  This is offset by shares CSX could repurchase using the proceeds from these hypothetical exercises to obtain the common stock equivalent.  This number is different from outstanding stock options, which is included in Note 3, Share-Based Compensation.

Basic earnings per share is based upon the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding.  Earnings per share, assuming dilution, is based on the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding adjusted for the effects of common stock that may be issued as a result of the following types of potentially dilutive instruments:

 
·
convertible debt,

 
·
employee stock options, and

 
·
other equity awards, which include unvested restricted stock and long-term incentive awards.

Emerging Issues Task Force (EITF) 04-8, The Effect of Contingently Convertible Debt on Diluted Earnings Per Share, requires CSX to include additional shares in the computation of earnings per share, assuming dilution.  The amount included in diluted earnings per share represents the number of shares that would be issued if all of CSX’s outstanding convertible debentures were converted into CSX common stock.

10

CSX CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)


NOTE 2.    Earnings Per Share, continued

As a result, diluted shares outstanding are not impacted when debentures are converted into CSX common stock because those shares were already included in the diluted shares calculation.  Shares outstanding for basic earnings per share, however, are impacted when conversions occur on a weighted average basis.  During third quarters 2008 and 2007, $15 million and $37 million, respectively, of face value of convertible debentures were converted into approximately 530,000 and 1.3 million shares of CSX common stock, respectively.  As of September 2008, $32 million of convertible debentures at face value remained outstanding, convertible into 1.1 million shares of CSX common stock.

NOTE 3.    Share-Based Compensation

CSX share-based compensation plans primarily include long-term incentive plans, restricted stock awards, stock options and stock plans for directors.  CSX has not granted stock options since 2003.  Awards granted under the various plans are determined and approved by the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors or, in certain circumstances, by the Chief Executive Officer for awards to management employees other than senior executives.  The Board of Directors approves awards granted to the Company’s non-management Directors upon recommendation of the Governance Committee.

On May 6, 2008, 340,000 target performance units were granted to certain layers of management under a new long-term incentive plan adopted under the CSX Omnibus Incentive Plan.  The payout range for participants will be between 0% and 200% of the original target grant based upon CSX’s attainment of pre-established operating ratio targets for fiscal year 2010.  This plan provides for a three-year cycle ending in fiscal year 2010.  Similar to the two existing plans, the financial target upon which payments are based is operating ratio, which is defined as operating expenses divided by operating revenue and is calculated excluding certain non-recurring items.  Target grants were made in performance units, with each unit being equivalent to one share of CSX stock, and payouts will be made in CSX common stock.  Payouts to certain senior executive officers are subject to a reduction of up to 30% at the discretion of the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors based upon Company performance against certain CSX strategic initiatives.

Total pre-tax expense associated with share-based compensation and its related income tax benefit is as follows:

NOTE 3.    Share-Based Compensation, continued

As of May 2008, all options are vested and therefore there will be no future expense related to these options.  As of September 2008, CSX had approximately 8 million stock options outstanding.

NOTE 4.    Casualty, Environmental and Other Reserves

Casualty, environmental and other reserves were determined to be critical accounting estimates due to the need for significant management judgments. They are provided for in the consolidated balance sheets as follows:

Details with respect to each type of reserve are described below.  Actual settlements and claims received could differ.  The final outcome of these matters cannot be predicted with certainty.  Considering the legal defenses available, the liabilities that have been recorded, and other factors, it is the opinion of management that none of these items, when finally resolved, will have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations, financial condition or liquidity.  However, should a number of these items occur in the same period, they could have a material effect on the results of operations, financial condition or liquidity in that particular period.


Casualty reserves represent accruals for personal injury and occupational injury claims.  Currently, no individual claim is expected to exceed the Company’s self-insured retention amount.  To the extent the value of an individual claim exceeds the self-insured retention amount, the Company would present the liability on a gross basis with a corresponding receivable for insurance recoveries.  Personal injury and occupational claims are presented on a gross basis and in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 5, Accounting for Contingencies (“SFAS 5”).  These reserves fluctuate based upon changes in estimates and the timing of payments.  Most of the claims were related to CSXT unless otherwise noted.

NOTE 4.    Casualty, Environmental and Other Reserves, continued

Defense and processing costs, which historically have been insignificant and are anticipated to be insignificant in the future, are not included in the recorded liabilities. The Company is presently self-insured up to $25 million per injury for personal injury and occupational-related claims.

Personal Injury

Personal injury reserves represent liabilities for employee work-related and third- party injuries.  Work-related injuries for CSXT employees are primarily subject to the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (“FELA”).  In addition to FELA liabilities, employees of other CSX subsidiaries are covered by various state workers' compensation laws, the Federal Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Program or the Maritime Jones Act.

CSXT uses actuarial methods to assess the value of personal injury claims and cases.  An analysis is performed semi-annually. The actuarial methodology used includes a development factor to reflect growth or reduction in the value of these personal injury claims. It is based largely on CSXT’s historical claims and settlement experience.  Actual results may vary from estimates due to the type and severity of the injury, costs of medical treatments and uncertainties in litigation.

Occupational

Occupational claims arise from allegations of exposure to certain materials in the workplace, such as asbestos, solvents (which include soaps and chemicals) and diesel fuels or allegations of chronic physical injuries resulting from work conditions, such as repetitive stress injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome and hearing loss.

An analysis is performed semi-annually.  The methodology used includes an estimate of future anticipated claims based on the Company’s trends in average historical claim filing rates, future anticipated dismissal rates and settlement rates.

Separation

Separation liabilities provide for the estimated costs of implementing workforce reductions, improvements in productivity and certain other cost reductions at the Company's major transportation units since 1991. These liabilities are expected to be paid out over the next 10 to 15 years from general corporate funds and may fluctuate depending on the timing of payments and associated taxes.

NOTE 4.    Casualty, Environmental and Other Reserves, continued

Environmental

The Company is a party to various proceedings related to environmental issues, including administrative and judicial proceedings, involving private parties and regulatory agencies. The Company has been identified as a potentially responsible party at approximately 247 environmentally impaired sites.  Many of those are, or may be, subject to remedial action under the Federal Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980, or CERCLA, also known as the Superfund Law, or similar state statutes. Most of these proceedings arose from environmental conditions on properties used for ongoing or discontinued railroad operations.  However, a number of these proceedings are based on allegations that the Company, or its predecessors, sent hazardous substances to facilities owned or operated by others for treatment or disposal.  In addition, some of the Company’s land holdings were leased to others for commercial or industrial uses that may have resulted in releases of hazardous substances or other regulated materials onto the property and could give rise to proceedings against the Company.

In any such proceedings, the Company is subject to environmental clean-up and enforcement actions under the Superfund Law, as well as similar state laws that may impose joint and several liability for clean-up and enforcement costs on current and former owners and operators of a site without regard to fault or the legality of the original conduct.  These costs could be substantial.

In accordance with Statement of Position 96-1, Environmental Remediation Liabilities, the Company reviews its role with respect to each site identified at least once a quarter.  Based on the review process, the Company has recorded amounts to cover anticipated contingent future environmental remediation costs with respect to each site to the extent such costs are estimable and probable.  The recorded liabilities for estimated future environmental costs are undiscounted and include amounts representing the Company's estimate of unasserted claims, which the Company believes to be immaterial. The liability includes future costs for remediation and restoration of sites as well as any significant ongoing monitoring costs, but excludes any anticipated insurance recoveries.  Payments related to these liabilities are expected to be made over the next several years.

NOTE 4.    Casualty, Environmental and Other Reserves, continued

Currently, the Company does not possess sufficient information to reasonably estimate the amounts of additional liabilities, if any, on some sites until completion of future environmental studies.  In addition, conditions that are currently unknown could, at any given location, result in exposure, the amount and materiality of which cannot presently be reliably estimated.  Based upon information currently available, however, the Company believes its environmental reserves are adequate to fund remedial actions to comply with present laws and regulations, and that the ultimate liability for these matters, if any, will not materially affect its overall results of operations, financial condition or liquidity.

Other

 Other reserves include liabilities for various claims, such as longshoremen disability claims, freight claims and claims for property, automobile and general liability.  These liabilities are accrued at the estimable and probable amount in accordance with SFAS 5.

NOTE 5.    Commitments and Contingencies

Purchase Commitments

CSXT has a commitment under a long-term maintenance program that currently covers 47% of CSXT’s fleet of locomotives.  The agreement is based upon the maintenance cycle for each locomotive.  Under CSXT’s current obligations, the agreement expires no earlier than 2028 and may last until 2031 depending upon when certain locomotives are placed in service.   The costs expected to be incurred throughout the duration of the agreement fluctuate as locomotives are placed into, or removed from, service or as required maintenance schedules are revised.  CSXT may terminate the agreement at its option after 2012, although such action would trigger significant liquidated damages provisions.

The following table summarizes CSXT’s payments under the long-term maintenance program:

Insurance

The Company maintains numerous insurance programs, most notably for third-party casualty liability and for Company property damage and business interruption, with substantial limits.  A certain amount of risk is retained by the Company on each of the casualty and property programs.  Specifically, the Company has a $25 million deductible for each of the casualty and non-catastrophic property programs and a $50 million deductible for the catastrophic property program.  These deductibles only apply to the first event.  If a property or liability event occurs in excess of the Company’s deductible and the Company does not elect to purchase additional insurance coverage, then the deductible for the second covered event will equal the amount of the claim in the first event.  For information on insurance issues resulting from the effects of Hurricane Katrina on the Company’s operations and assets, see Note 7, Hurricane Katrina.

Guarantees

CSX and certain of its subsidiaries are contingently liable, individually and jointly with others, as guarantors of approximately $58 million in obligations principally relating to leased equipment, vessels and joint facilities used by the Company in its current and former business operations.  Utilizing the Company’s guarantee for these obligations allows the obligor to take advantage of lower interest rates and obtain other favorable terms.  Guarantees are contingent commitments issued by the Company that could require CSX or one of its affiliates to make payment to, or to perform certain actions for, the beneficiary of the guarantee based on another entity’s failure to perform.

As of third quarter 2008, the Company’s guarantees primarily related to the following:

 
·
Guarantee of approximately $50 million of obligations of a former subsidiary, CSX Energy, in connection with a sale-leaseback transaction.  CSX is, in turn, indemnified by several subsequent owners of the subsidiary against payments made with respect to this guarantee.   Management does not expect that CSX will be required to make any payments under this guarantee for which CSX will not be reimbursed.  CSX’s obligation under this guarantee will be completed in 2012.

 
·
Guarantee of approximately $8 million of lease commitments assumed by A.P. Moller-Maersk (“Maersk”) for which CSX is contingently liable.  CSX believes Maersk will fulfill its contractual commitments with respect to such lease commitments, and CSX will have no further liabilities for those obligations.  CSX’s obligation under this guarantee will be completed in 2011.

As of third quarter 2008, the Company has not recognized any liabilities in its financial statements in connection with any guarantee arrangements.  The maximum amount of future payments the Company could be required to make under these guarantees is the sum of the guaranteed amounts.

Fuel Surcharge Antitrust Litigation

Since May 2007, at least 30 putative class action suits have been filed in various federal district courts against CSXT and three other U.S.-based Class I railroads.  The lawsuits contain substantially similar allegations to the effect that the defendants’ fuel surcharge practices relating to contract and unregulated traffic resulted from an illegal conspiracy in violation of antitrust laws.  The suits seek unquantified treble damages (three times the amount of actual damages) allegedly sustained by purported class members, attorneys’ fees and other relief.  All but three of the lawsuits purport to be filed on behalf of a class of shippers that allegedly purchased rail freight transportation services from the defendants through the use of contracts or through other means exempt from rate regulation during defined periods commencing as early as June 2003 and that were assessed fuel surcharges.  Three of the lawsuits purport to be on behalf of indirect purchasers of rail services.

The class action suits have been consolidated in federal district court in the District of Columbia.  The defendants filed a Motion to Dismiss and oral arguments were heard on October 10, 2008. The Court is expected to rule on the Motion to Dismiss within the next six months. The Court granted the defendants’ Motion for Protective Order, holding that no discovery should take place until after the Motion to Dismiss is decided.

One additional lawsuit was filed, but not served, by an individual shipper.  CSXT entered into a tolling agreement with this shipper whereby the shipper agreed to dismiss the lawsuit against CSXT without prejudice and CSXT agreed to extend the statute of limitations for the claims asserted until the end of 2010.

In July 2007, CSXT received a grand jury subpoena from the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General seeking information related to the same fuel surcharges that are the subject of the civil actions.  In July 2008, the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General formally notified CSXT that it had decided not to proceed with its investigation at this time.  It is possible that the New Jersey Attorney General could reopen the investigation or that other federal or state agencies could initiate investigations into similar matters.

NOTE 5.    Commitments and Contingencies, continued

CSXT believes that its fuel surcharge practices are lawful.  Accordingly, CSXT intends to vigorously defend itself against the purported class actions, which it believes are without merit.  CSXT cannot predict the outcome of the private lawsuits, which are in their preliminary stages, or of any government investigations, charges or additional litigation that may be filed in the future.  Penalties for violating antitrust laws can be severe, involving both potential criminal and civil liability.  CSXT is unable to assess at this time the possible financial impact of this litigation.  CSXT has not accrued any liability for an adverse outcome in the litigation.  If a material adverse outcome were to occur and be sustained, it could have a material adverse impact on the Company’s results of operations, financial condition or liquidity.

STB Rate Case

On October 3, 2008, Seminole Electric Cooperative, Inc. (“Seminole”) filed a complaint before the U.S. Surface Transportation Board (“STB”) against CSXT.   CSXT and Seminole are parties to an existing railroad transportation contract that is set to expire on December 31, 2008.  Seminole is contesting tariff rates that, absent a new or extended contract, could apply commencing January 1, 2009 for movements of coal to its existing and planned facilities.  Because of the preliminary nature of this case, CSXT is not able to assess at this time the possible financial impact of the STB proceeding.  However, the Company will continue to consider and pursue all available legal defenses in this matter.

Other Legal Proceedings

In addition to the matters described above, the Company is involved in litigation incidental to its business and is a party to a number of legal actions and claims, various governmental proceedings and private civil lawsuits, including, but not limited to, those related to environmental matters, FELA claims by employees, other personal injury claims and disputes and complaints involving certain transportation rates and charges.  Some of the legal proceedings include claims for compensatory as well as punitive damages and others are, or are purported to be, class actions.  While the final outcome of these matters cannot be predicted with certainty, considering, among other things, the legal defenses available and liabilities that have been recorded along with applicable insurance, it is currently the opinion of CSX management that none of these items will have a material adverse effect on the Company’s results of operations, financial condition or liquidity.  An unexpected adverse resolution of one or more of these items, however, could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s results of operations, financial condition or liquidity in a particular quarter or fiscal year.

NOTE 7.    Hurricane Katrina

In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina caused extensive damage to Company assets on the Gulf Coast, including damage to track infrastructure and bridges.  Operations were returned to pre-hurricane conditions by the end of first quarter 2006.  In 2005, the Company had insurance coverage of $535 million, after a $25 million deductible (per occurrence), for fixed asset replacement, incremental expenses, and lost profits.  Management’s loss estimate has been updated to be $445 million.  During the quarter, the Company submitted final proofs of loss to its insurance and reinsurance carriers.  Through September 2008, the Company had collected insurance payments of $373 million.

In May 2008, the Company filed a lawsuit in federal court against a number of companies that provide insurance and reinsurance coverage to the Company.  The insurance companies have refused to cover certain losses totaling approximately $50 million that the Company has incurred as a result of Hurricane Katrina and which the Company believes are covered by the policies at issue.  The specific claims relate to lost profits following the storm, costs associated with replacing two diesel locomotives and claims adjustment expenses.  The Company has asked the court to determine whether its damages are covered by the policies.  If the Company prevails, a separate proceeding will determine the amount of the Company’s recovery.  The Company will not recognize gains related to these disputed amounts until they are resolved by the courts.

Gains on insurance from claims related to Hurricane Katrina are attributable to recovering amounts in excess of the net book value of damaged fixed assets and to recording recoveries related to lost profits.  These gains, which are included in materials, supplies and other, were as follows:

NOTE 8.    Income Taxes

As of September 2008 and December 2007, the Company had approximately $59 million and $58 million, respectively, of total unrecognized tax benefits.  After consideration of the impact of federal tax benefits, $51 million and $50 million, respectively, could favorably affect the effective income tax rate. The Company estimates that approximately $17 million of the net unrecognized tax benefits as of September 2008 for various state and federal income tax matters will be resolved over the next 12 months.  Approximately $9 million of this total would be closed upon the expiration of statutes.  The final outcome of the remaining uncertain tax positions, however, is not yet determinable.

During 2008, the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) completed its examination of tax years 2004 through 2006. The Company has appealed a tax adjustment proposed by the IRS with respect to these tax years of which the amount is included in the uncertain tax positions above.  This appeals process is expected to last more than one year.  The IRS began its examination of the 2007 tax year during third quarter 2008.  All other federal prior tax year audits are settled.

In third quarter 2007, the IRS completed its review of the Company’s pre-filing agreement, which is an early review of specific transactions.  The Company recorded an income tax benefit of $110 million in third quarter 2007, primarily associated with the resolution of income tax matters related to former activities of the container shipping and marine service businesses.  This third quarter benefit is recorded as discontinued operations as the Company no longer operates in these businesses.  This benefit is associated with tax basis adjustments, foreign dividends and foreign tax credits from operations over a multi-year period.

CSX’s continuing practice is to recognize net interest and penalties related to income tax matters in income tax expense.  As of September 2008 and December 2007, the Company had a $2 million payable and a $4 million payable, respectively, accrued for interest and penalties.

Income from real estate and resort operations includes the results of operations of the Company’s real estate sales, leasing, acquisition and management and development activities as well as the results of operations from CSX Hotels, Inc., a resort doing business as The Greenbrier, located in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.  Income from real estate may fluctuate as a function of timing of real estate sales. Results from resort operations were down in 2008 because of decreased group business resulting from the uncertainty of labor negotiations, and an inability to sufficiently reduce contractual labor costs accordingly.

(c)
Miscellaneous income is comprised of equity earnings, minority interest, investment gains and losses and other non-operating activities. In first quarter 2008, CSX recorded a non-cash adjustment to correct equity earnings from a non-consolidated subsidiary.  This correction resulted in additional income of $30 million.  The impact of this adjustment is expected to be immaterial in future reporting periods.

NOTE 10.    Business Segments

The Company’s consolidated operating income results are comprised of two business segments: Rail and Intermodal.  The Rail segment provides rail freight transportation over a network of approximately 21,000 route miles in 23 states, the District of Columbia and the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec. The Intermodal segment provides integrated rail and truck transportation services and operates a network of dedicated intermodal facilities across North America.  These segments are strategic business units that offer different services and are managed separately.  Performance is evaluated and resources are allocated based on several factors, of which the principal financial measures are business segment operating income and operating ratio.  The accounting policies of the segments are the same as those described in Note 1, Nature of Operations and Significant Accounting Policies, in CSX’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Certain segment information has been reclassified to conform to current year  presentation.  See Note 1, Significant Accounting Policies, for further details.  Business segment information for third quarters 2008 and 2007 is as follows:

NOTE 11.    Employee Benefit Plans

The Company sponsors defined benefit pension plans principally for salaried, management personnel.  The plans provide eligible employees with retirement benefits based predominantly upon years of service and compensation rates near retirement.  For employees hired after December 31, 2002, benefits are determined based on a cash balance formula, which provides benefits by utilizing interest and pays credits based upon age, service and compensation.

In addition to these plans, CSX sponsors a post-retirement medical plan and a life insurance plan that provide benefits to full-time, salaried, management employees hired on or before December 31, 2002 upon their retirement if certain eligibility requirements are met.  The post-retirement medical plan is contributory (partially funded by retirees), with retiree contributions adjusted annually.  The life insurance plan is non-contributory.

During nine months 2008, the Company made total contributions of approximately $51 million to its defined benefit plans.

In accordance with the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (“the Act”), companies are required to be 94% funded for their outstanding qualified pension obligations as of January 1, 2009 in order to avoid a scheduled series of required annual contributions to reach 100% funding over seven years.  As of December 2007, qualified pension liabilities were nearly fully funded; however, recent market volatility and overall investment losses of pension assets for 2008, make it likely that CSX will need to make additional contributions to maintain at least a 94% funding target.   Offsetting this investment loss activity for 2008 is an expected increase in discount rates that will reduce measured liabilities and thus mitigate the underfunded amount.  Discount rates affect the amount of liability that will be effectively settled and for CSX are determined based on a hypothetical portfolio of high quality bonds.

NOTE 11.    Employee Benefit Plans, continued

Because asset values and discount rates that will apply cannot be accurately measured at this time, the amount of contributions that would be required to reach minimum targeted levels is not yet determinable.  If the Company were to estimate a funding amount based on the value of pension assets and interest rates as of October 7, 2008, the estimated additional after tax contribution needed to reach 94% funding would be approximately $200 million.   The Company would have until September 2009 to make this additional contribution and believes it could be funded using ongoing cash from operations.  Separate from these funding estimates, as of the end of 2008, the Company also will re-measure its assets and liabilities as required annually by accounting rules which will determine expense levels going forward.  Because of the complexity of actuarial calculations, the change in expense for 2009 is not yet determinable.

NOTE 12.    Related Party Transactions

Through a limited liability company, CSX and Norfolk Southern Corporation (“NS”) jointly own Conrail Inc. (“Conrail”).  CSX has a 42% economic interest and 50% voting interest in the jointly-owned entity, and NS has the remainder of the economic and voting interests.  Pursuant to APB Opinion 18, The Equity Method of Accounting for Investments in Common Stock, CSX applies the equity method of accounting to its investment in Conrail.  Conrail’s equity earnings are included in materials, supplies and other in the consolidated income statements.

Conrail owns and operates rail infrastructure for the joint benefit of CSX and NS.  This is known as the shared asset area.  Conrail charges fees for right-of way usage, equipment rentals and transportation, switching and terminal service charges in the shared asset area.   Historically, these expenses were included as an expense category called Conrail rents, fees and services, in the consolidated income statements. Beginning in 2007, these amounts have been included in materials, supplies and other on the consolidated income statements. 

As required by SFAS 57, Related Party Disclosures, the Company has identified below amounts owed to Conrail, or its affiliates, representing liabilities under operating, equipment and shared area agreements with Conrail.  The Company also executed two promissory notes with a subsidiary of Conrail which are included in long-term debt on the consolidated balance sheets.
