Since G&W'S HQ is in Greenwich, CT. and their administrative offices are in Rochester, New York, JACKSONVILLE should play this as an opportunity. Incentives to this outfit don't prevent us from losing the HQ of 45 railroads, they might help us gain the HQ of 66 more... This would make Jacksonville the home office for CSX, FEC, and 111 more railroad companies, more then any other city in the world.

G&W has an Operations office here in Jacksonville over in the Sutton Park Office Complex off Hodges and JTB.
