PC: Re: Why no money?

PC was forced to swallow NH against its will, but remember, it also ate a
lot of poison pills of its own.  I think the biggest problem with the
railroad portion was its total inability to assimilate the two existing
cultures, much less information systems, signalling and radio systems.

I think it is fair to say that PC management sought to diversify because the
regulatory situation on the Railroad made it impossible to guarantee a
profit on steel wheels alone.

Oh yes, and they had no money.
