Canadian Pacific 2nd quarter earning's are in Q2 Net C 635 million/ US 473 million. Not to bad all things considered. Definitely have some spare change to spruce up the CMQ to mainline standards.

Source told me don't be surprised if it hits around midnight. Source was a birdie who flew to my house with the info. I don't hand out names or positions to protect the innocent. Its only common courtesy. Of course the birdie could be off as well.You didn't burst my bubble, I reported it incorrectly based on what time they should have been there since I couldn't escape work today to go see myself (glad too that would have been a long wait at Jackman). The trace did update at 1320 departure out of Megantic and they were into Jackman at 1510 per the dispatcher but plenty of people on site to get you the to the second count. One would have thought it wouldn't take 7 hours to get from Lennoxville to Jackman it happened, even with the stall.

Obviously the weren't in Saint John at 08:00 for the ship. It will be interesting to see how the tides figure into the ship loading/unloading process there.

My friend the class one big wig told me months ago CP was going to make a run at the NBSR. The good old Irving's are in the cat bird seat as usual and ready to reap a fat payoff for the NBSR as I keep hearing they will let it go at their asking price. I assume they bought it to keep CN honest and thwart a captive shipper strangle hold on rates as Irving is notorious as a cheapskate shipper. The MMA- CMQ- NBSR-PAR soap opera continues.Any update on when CP will acquire the rest of the line from NBSR?
