ALBANY — A federal judge Thursday approved an agreement that would allow the New York, Susquehanna & Western Railway to continue operating the bankrupt Delaware & Hudson Railway, a railroad official said.

Judge Helen S. Balick’s decision handed down in Federal Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Del., means the agreement must be approved by the Interstate Commerce Commission.

“We’re deeply pleased with the decision,” said NYS&W spokesman Phil Pepe. “We have always believed in the merits of this plan and the merits it offers for the D&H, its employees and the shippers on the line.”

Balick’s decision comes two days after the trustee for D&H, Washington attorney Francis P. Dicello, the Cooperstown-based NYS&W and Baltimore-based CSX agreed that the NYS&W would operate the D&H for up to 18 months.
