Still waiting for that intermodal service connecting with CSX and NS into Maine that "deep throat" assured would start March, 2014. And, to be fair, with all the free passes over the years and odds in your favor since you're betting the entire field against my single pick, you should be offering something worthwhile in that deal.
Can you ask "deep throat" why GWI has had no showing in the zig zag rumor reporting, beyond matching your own wrong paradigm about STB regulation, when they are an important New England player?
Word on the street is that a case of Orange Crush was seen being loaded onto the OCS.
B) I have no idea what your second and third paragraph mean.
I drew up a nice little sketch showing GWI would literally have control of EVERY possible interchange with a Class I (and the majority of any other railroad) in and out of New England. Phrases such as, "needs to be seen from a Class I perspective" do not pass muster.
I don't think they would be a bad pick per se, but I have yet to meet one person in the industry who does not foresee regulatory concerns if this were to become true. I would even bet even if GWI had the cash and the will, they wouldn't even bother trying because they would recognize this.
