For exarap, the, Statement 'h''" been 4 made that we propose to!take off 2Opassenger What will happen tO :the trains gives a greatlyexaggerated impression of the amount of seriice we propose to discontinue, m ail s e vdc e ? Let's take a look at what's actually involved NP proposes to discontinue passenger service on nine branch lines between the following points: Fargo-Streeter, Staples-Oakes, Valley City- McHenry, Jamestown-Wilton, Jamestown- Leeds, Jamestown-Oakes, Fargo-Marion, Carrington-Turtle Lake and Esmond-Oberon. We also seek to discontinue Trains 3 and 4 between Mandan and Glendive, Mont., and turn the traffic handled by these locals over to the Mainstreeter, a modern transcontinental streamliner. What passenger-carrying equipment would come off? Only five diesel-electric motor cars, familiarly known as "galloping gooses", four combination coach-baggage cars which tag along behind the box cars in freight trains and one coach operated eay way on Trains 3 and 4 would be dropped. Th is the handful of cars which has been de- ta'ibed as "20 lmenger traits." Does anyone ride these passenger trains? Hardly anyone. An average of 2.96 revenue passengers rides each branch line train each way daily. (On five lines the average is less than two passengers and on one line, less than one passen- ger per trip!) All nne branch lines produce an Mail delivery is the responsibility of the post office department, not the railroads. Our eXperi- ence with train discontinuance in other states has been that the postal department has ar- ranged for equal or better service by highway than trains had previously provided. Our inves- tigations in North Dakota convince us that the same would be true in this state. NP's request is not a new development The Northern Pacific did not spring its peti- tion to the ICC out of a clear sky. As far back as 1955, we-applied to the North Dakota Public Service Commission to drop some of our unprof- itable branch line passenger service. In many eases we offered to substitute highway service using new modern combination bus-trucks. But all of our requests were denied. That is why the NP is now petitioning the ICC. We're not picking on North Dakota In asking to be relieved of the unfair burden of operating these unpatronized trains, the Northern Pacific is only asking for what has already been granted by other state commis- sions. We have long since been given permission to discontinue unprofitable branch line Imsserq service in the neighboring states of Minnesota and Montana and in Idaho and Washington. We believe wv are entitled to the same treat- ment in North Dakota.
