The GR&P no longer exsists...the old main is no OC&M, and the rest was dissolved into the TSCR

I'm confused, what ex NYC line are you claiming that ran west of Butler, the old FW&J that ran thru Waterloo? If so, I own that line under my Penn Central.

Hes thinking of the ex-INER. Not the line you're talking about.

GTW only had 2 RS1's, 1950 & 1951. The were the last two domestic RS1's built.

Okay, we have a problem then. You are claiming ownership of two specific lines that my Penn Central owns, the first being that part of the Waterloo Branch from Steubenville to Hillsdale(I own the entire thing from Jackson to Fort Wayne), and the North Adams Branch from Hillsdale to North Adams(in my world the branch ends at North Adams).

Now, what I can do is give you ownership of the North Adams Branch from Hillsdale to North Adams, as long as I get trackage rights to switch my customers in North Adams. As to the Waterloo Branch, I will offer you trackage rights from Steubenville to Hillsdale with PC retaining ownership of the line and dispatching control over it.

The way to differentiate is one has 7 in their username, the other doesn't.
