While I don't doubt LSRC getting the tracks from Flint to Plymouth I see CPR making a move on the PM from Detroit to Porter, IN. Sure, the NS former NYC-WAB route thru Butler, IN is shorter - but it's more congested, and with CSX in a selling mood it may be CP's only chance to close this gap in its network. Besides, with Creel and EHH being close I see this more likely than G&W picking it up, and would keep Class One operations on the Grand Rapids and Plymouth Subs.
