WASHINGTON — CSX Transportation is in talks to buy 1,700-mile New England regional Pan Am Railways, a move that Norfolk Southern today said it would oppose in a filing with federal regulators.

NS is Pan Am Railways’ partner in the Pan Am Southern, the joint venture that gives NS access to New England via trackage rights on the former Boston & Maine main line between Mechanicville, N.Y., and Ayer, Mass.
