CR ruined the entire system. A once 44,000
mile system down to a short line status 11000 miles.
Some shortline. Those 2 eastern clowns paid over $10 Billion for the Conrail
Along with this came the end to jobs for many who worked for NH, PRR and
NYC into PC.
RIF, reduction in force, don't need 5 car shops, 5 diesel shops, and 5
trainmen on locals or even through freights for that matter.
All RRs have suffered through this phenomena, although none quite as
cataclysmic as the PC/CR. An inevitable consequence of technology, although
one could argue that RRs have not substantially changed their core
technology since the invention of the airbrake<g>
