This is a possibilty.  I think other mergers possibilites existed, but
since the government already had it's paws all over PC, the probably just
figured "what the heck..."

NH + B&M
NH + D&H (that would have been *colorful*!)

possibly avoided Guilford.  However merging NH with any existing New
England railroad would have brought shouts of unfair competiton from the
remaining roads.
