OT: Interesting Career Path for PAR GM

Postby johnpbarlow » Mon Jan 09, 2017 8:17 am

Pan Am Railways General Manager Luke McCaul departs to become General Manager of Transdev's Cincinnati Bell Connector street car operations. Given his membership in Boston Street Railway Historical Society and the New England Electric Railway Historical Society, perhaps this is his true career aspiration?

Yes before that he was GM of PAR. PAS has their own GM and there is no GM of ST since it's just the operator for both RRs.

He was good I am sure he will be missed.

Pan Am plays title games. Luke's position was no more than a Superintendent on a class 1, but at least GM makes it look good on paper. But he knows his stuff and will definitely be missed. That kind of departure has to be a reality check for Pan Am senior management.
