Re: Harrison Leaves CP early, looks to CSX, end of CSX in MI

It is all speculation. Thinking of possible outcomes based on the facts. There are way more than one possible answers, because there can be no right answer, because it is speculation, defined as: the forming of a theory or conjecture without firm evidence. I'm not wrong, just because one guy decide...

Re: Harrison Leaves CP early, looks to CSX, end of CSX in MI

PS: haven't had time to research CSX_CO's point yet...back to that later :lol: Have you ever admitted to being wrong to anything instead of jumping around the subject? I've never seen him admit he was wrong. If he is, he covers by saying he "misspoke". It's like saying "I was wrong" would kill him.

Re: Harrison Leaves CP early, looks to CSX, end of CSX in MI

Look at it this way. Discontinuing service over a line with 0 online business (B&O from Oleny, IL to Collinsville, Il) warranted filings. No impacted customers, no line sale, no violations of trackage rights agreement, etc. Stands to reason entering into a trackage rights agreement where customers c...

Dig thru the CFR I'm sure it will tell you.

Either way, the STB has final say if the railroad initial filing is correct in the classification of the transaction.

Re: Harrison Leaves CP early, looks to CSX, end of CSX in MI

Within 30 days of the pre-motion being filed, it will be made public record. This doesn't even deal with filing of the sale or rights themselves, this is the filing of the "intent to file." As Amtk55 said. Never once seen any pre-motion filings to even indicate a transaction was even on the table, o...

Re: Harrison Leaves CP early, looks to CSX, end of CSX in MI

It has to be made known so outside parties can file adverse petitions, file to block the sale/transaction, workforce concerns, etc. etc. etc. It's in the Codified Rules. https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/49/1180 (b) Prefiling notification.

Where's your proof?

You realize line sales and trackage rights have to go through the STB? Even thinking about talking has to be filed.

Or, is it your "sandhouse runors" and "Union guy says"...

Re: Harrison Leaves CP early, looks to CSX, end of CSX in MI

CP doesn't want the PM. That torch passed almost 30 years ago. Don't tell Racer, :D I know. I said in the chat, the other line with as rabid of fans is in SE Ohio and there is entire thread dedicated to the glorious future of that meandering cowpath. The parallels are numerous, but at least the PM ...

Re: Harrison Leaves CP early, looks to CSX, end of CSX in MI

You're the one who said there was nothing left to discuss (see below). Only nothing left to discuss if someone disagrees with your outlook. At which point you'll chime in, then declare discussion closed. Which is probably why people stop coming here. Ok to debate, as long as you agree with what's sa...

Re: Harrison Leaves CP early, looks to CSX, end of CSX in MI

I hope it brings more CSX trains through Lansing on the Plymouth! It won't. Right now they're trying to lower the traffic count in an attempt to evade PTC. Now your grasping at straws. It's already stated east of GR won't get PTC. West side will need it for AMTRAK. Doubt they run 100 million Gross'...

Maybe on the "west end" but copied and pasted from Trainirders: "in 1999 and 2000, the CN singled tracked more of the Flint sub. Removed was Bancroft(mp 248) to Perry (mp 241), Shaftsburg(mp 235) to Okemos (mp 227), and Potterville (mp 208) to Walton twp/Five point highway (mp 197). a total of 26 mi...

Re: Harrison Leaves CP early, looks to CSX, end of CSX in MI

The PM is nothing more than a series of branches that just so happened to link Detroit to Chicago. I've said it before, but Kalamazoo was the PM original goal, and diverting to GR only happened because they lost the CK&S to the NYC. The NYC did it to keep the PM out if Kzoo, and sapping the local tr...

Re: Harrison Leaves CP early, looks to CSX, end of CSX in MI

Thank you for the laugh. Obviously MQT3001 is too young to remember Harrison cutting the double track from the GTW while he was at CN and "right sizing" the physical plant there. Never mind the amount of mud spots that started creeping up from trimming the MOW budget. He was also a proponent of the ...

Downgraded the Monon from 79 to 60 mph and AMTRAK didn't have a leg to stand on.

Re: Harrison Leaves CP early, looks to CSX, end of CSX in MI

That's if the PM isn't relegated to secondary status long before any merger is consummated. I think it already is.... Under realignment the short line group will be 25 mph speed limits and any thru traffic routed off those lines. Other "secondary lines" will be 40mph speed limits. PM is in the "Sho...

Re: Harrison Leaves CP, maybe for CSX -- MICHIGAN WILL BE OK

c. Actually, an interesting thing about Harrison: while severing all ties with CP, he knows all about their Michigan situation...as in not owning their own line. And he knows, too, that CP has tried to buy it before. So alternately, besides the MDOT option, this move, in my opinion, would raise the...

Re: Harrison Leaves CP early, looks to CSX, end of CSX in MI

Might kiss Michigan good bye regardless if Harrison makes his power play. New system map coming out of the realignment shows most of Michigan going into the "Shortline Group" which means it doesn't fit into the long range plan/goals. Rumor is lines in that group are up for bids.
