Re: PC: What if

My personal feeling is that Pc could have been a viable carrier if
#1. They would have been more progressive in inovations. NYC was doing
all this great stuff and prr wasnt. So when the prr guys had control not
much new stuf was tried.

2# Cut down opperations on money loosing lines. They should have done
what conrail did. Eliminate opperations on low trafic lines.

Even if they did some things it still would have been an uphill battle.
Some other problems were that the car routing and locating computers
were not compatable between companies. But the overall problem was that
the two railroads were basically in places duplicating track!
