CN, CP dispute continues over STB review of KCS merger application


The back-and-forth between CN and Canadian Pacific over the latter’s application for approval of its acquisition of Kansas City Southern is continuing, according to documents filed in recent days with the Surface Transportation Board (STB).

Late last week, CN filed a letter with the STB in response to CP’s letter that addressed CN's intention to submit a responsive application asking the STB to condition its approval of the CP-KCS merger on the divestiture of KCS lines from Kansas City, Missouri, to Springfield and East St. Louis, Illinois, to CN.

The Springfield Line is a direct competitive alternative to CP’s route from Kansas City to Chicago, and beyond to Detroit and eastern Canada, according to CN.
