So, you're saying that UP management is thinking "we'll squeeze a year or two of high profits out of this and then let 'er go bankrupt"? That's nonsense.

People may not agree with the PSR strategy but it is NOT a method to kill a railroad with maximum profit.

Sure a lot of non-PSR supporters have been shown the door. Why keep them if they're not on board? If the reverse were true, traditional management would boot PSR types to the curb in a heartbeat--accompanied by a chorus of cheers from the peanut gallery.

I do agree that companies have to spend it to make it. They just shouldn't spend more than necessary.

If PSR is such an unmitigated get-rich-quick disaster it would be long gone already. Sure there have been misfires and poor planning, just like a shift of such magnitude in any industry. There will more mistakes I'm sure. That said, PSR isn't going anywhere. It'll continue to evolve, with individual roads employing different solutions.

The nearby EDD reports multiple 900 axle trains every day and it's been at least a year since I heard it snag a defective car. Seems like a pretty fair "outcome" so far.
