Re: Livestock through Chicago

I would expect that simply because the PRR and the B&O each served most
of the same territory, while the Erie missed the entire Philadelphia to
Baltimore to Washington corridor, as well as Detroit and Pittsburgh. The
Erie may have gotten a disproportionate amount of perishables and meat to
New York City and New England. But there's no question when comparing the
PRR to the Erie it's like comparing a fire hose to a garden hose.

What Tony also fails to note is that in spite of the supposed shipper preference
for the Erie, the PRR hauled vastly more perishable traffic in terms of carloads
than the Erie (about 3 times more).
