Bad news for this old railroad town, as Uncle Pete is just getting started chopping. First thing; Close the diesel shop. Then close the warehouses. And then switching operations, and everything else at Hinkle. Screw all these folks. They've been coasting too long already, doing nothing and collecting pay checks.

Blame PSR, which is now spreading like a virus throughout the industry. Everybody working for every Class-I in North America is vulnerable to this "Precision Scheduled Railroading" which is actually a big scam perpetrated by the late Hunter "Hillbilly" Harriston, former CEO of CSX Railroad, Canadian Pacific, and Canadian National

It's all short pool for them vs long pool for us.....
