I assume you're talking about the CP ethanol trains that are now running? From what I understand this was the business that was running on CSX over the summer, that CP now moves themselves. It's good for railfans on the Chicago Line! I've seen it run as a W2T, I'm not sure if there are any other symbols out there.

No NS is not short-hauling themselves. This isn't NS business to begin with. CP was actually short-changing themselves by running the business on CSX. They determined that they could keep the routing well in to New York state before handing it off, instead of giving it up in Chicago.
