". . . The ERIE was the largest carrier of perishable traffic from the west via the Chicago gateway to the east coast. . . ."

I think part of the problem is that some people are arguing "Which RR would be used if the shippers had a choice?" while others are talking about "Which RR carried the most?"

The interesting thing - and probably the most annoying thing to many - was that despite having such a poor reputation and paying out the most claims, the PRR still carried more than anybody and probably still made money at it.
