Re: NS LCL service
Yes, I hope their new service works out too. It seems like under the PSR regime, it is literally the railroads' way or the highway, and they don't seem to care one way or the other, which is too bad. I've often thought the large RR's ought to concentrate on the line haul and contract the first and last mile work to shortlines. Maybe they could work something out with G&W and Watco. Then again, maybe that makes too much sense.
By the way, that wasn't me asking if you and I had ever met. I should have included that most of that text was in response to an email I sent to Foster Robinson of Steel Interstate, and that was his response. He was asking me if he and I had ever met! I think I must have seen him somewhere on Trains newswire.
I would also think NS might find a niche to keep Roadrailers going. USPS comes to mind....
