Thread regarding Union Pacific Corp. layoffs

BNSF/Hinkle

I wouldn't put it past BNSF to pick up Hinkle because as was mentioned it's in a prime area and could really help their Company. I think that's the core issue with the UP and their coming late to the party approach on PSR.

Their major hubs are all in proximity to other railroads who could easily eat up their customer base driving the Company's stock price into the basement (can't live off free tax cut money forever).

Buffet has always been good at the long-game and I honestly would not be surprised that once the ball drops on the UP and they lose their customers right along with the thousands of people they furloughed that BNSF and possibly CN comes in and picks up the pieces.

@OP you’re trippin if you think we’d sell a facility to a competitor 😂 UP would sooner burn it to the ground than do that!

Talked to a buddy of mine today who works for BN, he was saying that the COO for BN was in Vancouver earlier this month doing a Q & A and said to expect to start seeing some of the PSR stuff gravitate to BN’s operation. He did say that they aren’t going as extreme as the UP and CN did but they are planning to implement some things.

CN is hiring train crews heavily in California.

BNSF has a hump across the river in Pasco. Buying Hinkle serves no purpose. The interchange is Villard Junction. To get to Hinkle they'd have to buy the entire line from Villard Junction to Hinkle. Or operate over trackage rights agreement to get there and then go nowhere.

At this time next year it’ll be surprising to see just how much is left of UP and just how profitable the company is. Buffett isn’t dumb and he knew this company would eventually screw up and they did, so he swooped in and took clients that they didn’t want anymore. As far as BNSF and CN buying up now closed shops and property it’s entirely possible unless UP used them to secure the loans for the stock buybacks.
