Re: Tuscarora Almanac for January 1

Yep. Penn Central did everything to chase the passenger away. In addition, they chased all the freight traffic out of Manhattan. An example, Anhaueser Busch's Newark Brewery couldn't keep up with the new demand of their suds in the NYC area with the demise of Schaefer & Rheingold's popularity. They wanted to ship their beer in from out of state brewerys to the PC's 60 st team tracks. They guaranteed the railroad an average of 1000 carloads a month.
Penn Central turned them down.
