Not your father's Pine Tree Route

First of all, we're not in Maine and secondly the livery is not Harvest gold. Rather we're in Gardner as Pan Am road local ED-8 with the faux-CSX C40-8 and local FI-1 with Guilford scheme GP40 are doing work. Assuming CSX acquires Pan Am in May of 2022 as STB has proposed, G&W subsidiary Berkshire & Eastern should acquire the C-C unit to handle the other Pan Am Southern ops while CSX is to retain PAR's serviceable B-B units. And the question is will Gardner cease being the interchange bottleneck that it is today with G&W's P&W and B&E jointly handling run-through freights between E Deerfield and Worcester?

Any new operation which begins life counting on anything Guilford owned is in for a rude awakening

As for B-B units, CSX has plenty of their own, stored now, and will stay well away from any equipment now claimed by Pan Am
