Certificate Vignette

The Penn Central Railway Company was formed by the merger of the Pennsylvania Railroad and the New York Central in 1968, Penn Central became a major player in the national railroad industry. However, the newly formed company had taxes, interest and rents to pay - a total of $248,000,000.00. Also due were payments on outstanding bonds, equipment contracts, and additional sales agreements totaling $1,800,000,000.00. When Penn Central asked the Nixon administration for the governments help with a proposed $200,000,000.00 emergency loan guarantee, Congress pressured against it. With no alternative, the company then sought the protective measures of bankruptcy.
