Re: Why NY Penn Station still sucks

Yeah, the state governments were up to their eyeballs in charter issues. The story goes that when Gould needed the NYS Legislature to okay his Erie RR,he went to Albany w/ $1.5 million in cash and checks,coming back with a charter and no money. PA blocked the B&O for quite a while at the behest of the PRR, and MD did the same to PRR between Baltimore and DC. .
