I think it a "very safe" assumption that here in "the Land of the Burlingtons", riders would sooner pay what they must without having service cuts. That 1140P departure, BNSF 1299, "on the block", in addition to being my "back up' for a lengthy CSO performance, would appear to be needed for those attending sports events where the several venues are "not exactly" next door to CUS or C&NW.
Oh and pay what you must; anyone care to check out New York area rail fares?
