Well, Bear and co. must be hibernating... it would be interesting to hear their perspective on MMA right now. Well, if you're still out there... happy Christmas to you all and I hope that the MMA is on the right path.

Happy Holidays to you. I think MMA is heading the right way expect if they have another bad winter.

I'm sure this winter will be much better than the previous ones for MMA. They've got plenty of spare parts, a few spare locos, and they say they're going to be much more proactive about snow removal this time around.

Afternoon, folks...I can't speak for Bear but do speak to him (and other former BAR/CDAC's) on occasion. Most everyone has their nose to the grind and are working diligently. I understand things are progressing pretty well on the MM&A, but they've also hit a few rough spots, which is to be expected. There still remains plenty of additional business on the system and on the NBSR, but I think they are taking baby steps to insure their viablility. They seem to be moving large tonnage numbers and it looks like most every train is up to capacity.
