pardon me for veering off rail, but. professional sports franchises in general operate as extortionists; time and again demanding that the public underwrite their stadia, arenas, under threat of moving to some other town/city more gullible, because they have huge anti-trust loopholes. In my view, the ONLY legitmate pro sports franchise is the socialist Green Bay Packers--peoples' owned through the city of Green Bay.

As to PRR being in deep red ink, yes, both because of taxpayer subsidized trucking competition AND internal incompetence. The debacle of railroading in the US was caused by many dumb maneuvers.
