ELBERT GARY CONNECTS THE GRAND TRUNK TO THE SOO LINE. Welcome to the brave new world of railroading, in which the old Canadian National (does the company still go by that name or only as its initials?) will be able to connect its eastern, southern, and granger properties by way of Joliet.
Canadian National said it plans to invest about $100 million for integration, new connections, and infrastructure improvements to add capacity on the EJ&E line and allow network synergies to be realized over time.
"Network synergies." I think that used to be called "making connections." Or perhaps, "sharp dispatching."
