There is nothing about it so far on the official NS or CP webpages..

from what I've heard and read it's true, CP and NS will be slow to post it on their own websites........
At least it says they will dovetail the seniority so the D&H guys won't be on the bottom of the NS roster.

Railpace has posted a rebuttal from CPR. Well, a kind of rebuttal...

CANADIAN PACIFIC'S RESPONSE TO BLE LOCAL WEBSITE REPORT: There has continued to be a number of rumours and ongoing speculation in regards to the restructuring by CPR of its D&H railroad. As a matter of policy CPR does not comment on rumours or speculation on any aspect of their operations. However, in response to rumours posted on the BLE website regarding a possible deal between CPR and NS on the operations of the D&H, CPR made the following comments:

• CPR acknowledged NS is one of several railways that have expressed an interest in participating in the restructuring of the D&H.
• CPR has not formalized any deal in regards to the restructuring of the D&H.
• CPR will issue a formal news release when it has formalized its restructuring of the D&H.

The posting on the BLE website was fraudulent....... someone, apparently an NS employee, hacked into the BLE server and posted that message. The powers that be supposedly know who posted it so I'm sure reprimands will follow.
