Suppose also that PC remained profitable, but Conrail took over 
everybody else (e.g. LV, Reading, CNJ, et al.).  What would happen then?  
Would PC be bidding on the remains of CR+CSX&NS?  Who knows, but it 
would make an interesting modelling scenario! Imagine ex-CR, NS,and CSX 
rolling stock with their logos replaced by PC worms!!!
