10. Its Silly Season

The irony is that the logical buyer for CBEC Railroad is BNSF as that is who they interchange with. The Medford, Oregon railroad may even be in the same position although their interchange could be with UPRR. The purpose of the law that governs this is to encourage competition. Whether Berkshire-Hathaway owns these railroads has zero bearing on competition and considering that BNSF would be the logical buyer for at least one of these railroads shows this to be silly season.
