TP&W president George P. McNear was determined to break the union, Leitze said, making the strike personal.
Page 2 of 2 - When the line was returned to McNear and his board of directors, the railroad had made a profit of $6 million. However, the government took $3.5 million of that for maintenance and other costs. But the return of McNear also meant the return of the strike, during which McNear shut the railroad down. But when McNear was walking home from a basketball game in March of 1947, he was shot by one or more assailants, the only railroad president ever assassinated in the United States. The murder was never solved.

One possible reason for the lack of TP&W photos of the late steam era is that from the early 30s until 1947, TP&W's president, George McNear, was virulently anti-rail labor union, and the railroad had a very active PD.
