I encountered this issue while doing research on passenger data in Maine. There was an opinion from the Maine AG that said because of bankruptcies the state charters as originally granted were no longer in force.

TransitMatters, a nonprofit that advocates for improved transit in and around Boston, last month published that “Pan Am and its corporate predecessor Guilford are notorious for paring service and infrastructure investment to an absolute minimum while offloading as many costs as possible onto the public sector.”or
Pan Am Railways Executive Vice President Cynthia Scarano said she disagrees with TransitMatters’ comments, saying the company’s customers are thrilled with the service.As the Chico Marx character in the Marx Brothers' "Duck Soup" movie" famously asked
“We’ve made a lot of investments in our infrastructure over the last five years,” she said.

A215 and O'Keefe, matters not if the boys and girls from G&W take a joyride around the Pan Am, so long as the STB holds to their competitive rail philosophy, they "ain't a gonna get it".A215 wrote:G&W is supposedly touring the property.
