I'm not sure that NS, in their stage of PSR, is willing to make that investment now. I can see them selling their stake and retreating to Mohawk Yard, and having a shortline feed them some traffic from Ayer.Not likely. For as little as they have done, Squires said they are not giving up on their New England investment. There is little incentive to sell their share of PAS to a shortline unless there are zero protections from this sale. As I've mentioned prior, it's nuts to think the back channels weren't open between all 3 parties long before the sale announcement.
I think CSX just totally kicked them out of New England, or at best made them a minor player.
