Re: interchange (Meat from CGW)

Tony what you say is true. Which is why I suggested that some of that meat arriving on the highline may have traveled first on the
NKP before it went to the NYC. To get to the branch houses on the west side of the city the car had to travel on the NYC at some
point, at the end of it's journey, but this does not imply it traveled NYC all the way from Chicago to New York City. Meat
shippers along with produce shippers wanted speed. NPK and Erie were noted for speed.
