Pan Am is a Class II railroad in every sense of the word. If this situation had happened on a Class I, the situation would've been solved last week or earlier. I'd love to know what some NS execs are thinking right now about the situation.

I'm not positive, but I want to say I saw photos, perhaps on Twitter, of a partial collapse in the tunnel.

That is correct. It looks like a fairly difficult repair job from photos I have seen. Not that I am an expert in repairing cave ins in tunnels of that age by any means.
