Re: Soo Line on10-29-83
When the WC first took over, the Soo Line (CP) traffic shifted to the CSX route thru Grand Rapids and the traffic on the WC across the U.P. initially dropped considerably. I recall trains of 20-25 cars at first. Overtime the WC, and now CN has done a great job of rebuilding that traffic. Yes, trains are back to 100+ cars now, but they weren't always.
