CSX Issues Statement Regarding Minority Board Slate

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CSX Corporation (NYSE: CSX) issued the following response to today's press release from a group of shareholders, including The Children's Investment Fund Management (U.K.) LLP and 3G Capital Partners, LTD, announcing its intent to nominate a minority slate of directors to stand for election at the 2008 Annual Meeting:

"CSX has a strong Board of Directors with a broad range of experience. This group of directors has driven the company's successes, including nearly tripling the stock price in the past three years, and provided shareholders a return better than the rest of the North American rail industry and 89 percent of all S&P companies.

"The Board and management team believe that the CSX directors are well qualified to further advance the interests of the company's shareholders, as well as its employees, customers and communities. The Board also believes the company's outstanding record of financial, safety and operational improvements demonstrates unequivocally that CSX is a well run company."

EXHIBIT 2

Today a group of shareholders made up of hedge funds that operate from the U.K and the Cayman Islands announced plans to nominate five candidates to the twelve-member CSX Board of Directors.

CSX already has a strong Board of Directors with a broad range of experience.  The members of this Board have driven the company's successes, including nearly tripling the stock price in the last three years and providing shareholders with a return better than the rest of the North American rail industry and 89 percent of all S&P 500 companies.  These gains in shareholder value are the result of safety, operational and financial improvements.

The bottom line is that CSX is a very well run company with a strong Board that supports your work and accomplishments.  The fact that shareholders are focused on CSX is a sign of your success, and that CSX's strategy has delivered, and will continue to deliver, strong results.  You should have confidence that CSX will keep moving forward and building value for you, for our customers, our communities and this country.
