FYI, the L&N slogan "The Old Reliable" had NOTHING to do with railroad
performance, and
EVERYTHING to do with paying a consistent dividend (i.e., stock performance)!

Brian, this is great news! I suppose since the PRR never failed to pay a

thus had every right to the moniker "Standard Railroad of the World."

Couldn't resist.
