These guys have the strategic advantage that they can go coast to coast to coast, which isn't something a lot of other North American railroad operators can say.

I wanted a railroad operator, and I missed the boat on GWR, so I went with my next safe bet, which is this. I had noticed that GWR was doing more with fewer employees, which always seems to be a good sign for profitability, and its books looked not too bad. I guess I was right, but again, I moved too slowly, so I went with this instead.
