For clarification, D2 and D3 are the remaining divisions of the old B&M under PanAm ownership; D1 is the former MEC north / east of Rigby. Springfield Terminal is indeed the one-time switching railroad with advantageous labor agreements to which the operation of the BM and MEC were leased upon Guilford taking control. Pan Am Southern is the joint venture with NS that operates the former District 4.
Thanks, Mr. Markhb
So it appears that the "Springfield Terminal guise" enabled a more favorable "non-Conference" Agreement to be effected with the entire Guilford system.
Now did this "guise" affect only non-Operating crafts (an earlier post notes that MofW employees "walked") or the "Ops" as well?
Now if NS wants the E-W B&M Mech-Ayer and maybe Rigby to protect their traffic they enjoy with whatever arrangement (I thought it was just Marketing, but other posts suggest an investment) exists, are they prepared to have the favorable Local Agreements with ST abrogated in favor of the Conference's?
Again I note, Topper ain't some dumb bobtail nag.
