Look how the govt runs passenger trains named Amtrak. They do not
serve all areas as they are supposed to do. All our taxes to them
give us minimal yo no service unless you live on the NEC which was
more busy under PRR-PC then Amtrak.
CR was the freight version of Amtrak. The govt reduced 44,000 miles
of track ro under 1100 miles and along with this came many layoff's
of Ex-PC employee's who were never able to seek that type work or
saleries again. Yes, the govt should have funded PC as they do the
airlines. Imagine how profitable an airline or truck company would be
if they had to pay and do maintenance and pay taxes to their own
runways and roadways? PC was the best railroad ever. Too bad the govt
dismantled it as they did the O&W, NY Westchester & Boston, etc. I
agree with your choice of power the PC would have had. PC did prefer
ALCO's and GE's over EMD's.Yes, the same thing happened to THE ROCK
