PC: Re: Re: Conrail's Final Hour

CR was no PC. They did much to ruin the system. Most forgot CR was like
Amtrak, owned and operated by the govenment. PC was the best railroad ever
but mismanageed by PRR executives who thought they were still running PRR
than PC much like DLW's William White who thought EL was still his DL&W.
