It’s also interesting you brought up Kansas City. I was considering each carriers “route map” so to speak and CSX and CP really don’t have many competitive lanes, even now. Chicago and Detroit? Even in the Midwest CSX hits Saint Louis and CP has Kansas City.Mr. Sweep, looking at the CP System Map, it shows haulage rights from Buffalo to Chicago over CSX (NYC to Greenwich OH B&O). Therefore CP could handle traffic over the TH&B to the NYC. The map further shows same Windsor Tunnel then NS (WABASH to Butler IN, NYC) to Chicago. From there they have their own rails (well, SOO)Harbor Belt to "my" MILW at NORPAUL thence to Kansas City.
All told, CP is well positioned to handle traffic from Keag ME to Kansas City. I don't think they "need skin in the game" between "claws" and "hoofs" over Pan Am.
