If you are a company that owns a bunch of Class-1 shortlines, or even Class-2 regionals,
no amount of those will ever make you a Class-1, unless they were all connected into one railroad..
which they are not in the case of the G&W.
So even if G&W had enough total trackage to qualify as a Class-1, it would still never be a Class-1
if all that total trackage is spread out over dozens of shortlines..
G&W is not one big railroad..it's lots of small railroads.
