Re: The Next Round of Mergers

Everytime hunter talks at a rail confrence, or we "CP" give our finacials to the community, he says within the next 3-5 years there will be major rail consolidation, due to capacity issues and the need to move frieght by rail doubling by 2025-2030.

Re: SOO and DME Exchange Trackage Rights In LaCrosse Area

Its a way that Cp dosent have to pay the DME, CP rates to run trains further. Something wierd has been brewing in Portage as well, I think Cp also wants the DME to help run trains on the tomah and river subs because CP is soooo short man power outta the cities and portage. Why should CP pay soo line...

Re: CP and KCS finally might happen in near future.

I'd say 1/3 of our capex budget went towards ctc. lighting will make it stop working, ctc all thru the dakotas into humbolt yard. there is still some ABS on the line maybe 8-10 mile streches west outta b-ville. Calgary came up with a plan that goes against our contract saying that all trains bound f...

Re: CP and KCS finally might happen in near future.

the empty grain, oil, ethanol goes 50/50 west and north out of b-ville, all road work done west gets switched in nahant or savanna and then decided. a lot of the KC traffic goes down the river sub from st paul and then thru the DME ICE lines, we take over maybe 2-3 KCS trains and run them up to st p...

Re: CP and KCS finally might happen in near future.

How is the condition of CP's line between Bensenville and Savanna, ILL? Is this line primarily rely jointed rail or welded rail? Does this line have CTC, ABS or is it dark territory? Is it mostly single track now? As of the first of this year all CTC, single line starts somewhere a little past big ...

Re: CP and KCS finally might happen in near future.

How does the CP line to Kansas City compare with its competitors? It seems like the weak sister and a bottleneck for a CP-KCS merger when compared with the BNSF and UP routes, but maybe I'm missing something in terms of grades or other operational constraints. Its not the best line we own, old ic&e...

Re: CP put their SD60 for sale

I honestly think, the Soo line, the DME and all the ICE lines will be up for sale by the time this is all said and done, i work out of St paul and have never in my entire career seen CP turining and dropping bussiness as they have been in the past 6 months, another carrier such as UP will probally s...

Re: CN chicago seniority district questions
