Canadian Pacific (“CP”) said the U.S. Surface Transportation Board (“STB”) has approved the appointment of former U.S. Federal Railroad Administration (“FRA”) Administrator Ronald L. Batory as the Trustee of the CP-Kansas City Southern (“KCS”) Voting Trust, following the death of David Starling.

With the STB’s approval Friday, Mr. Batory’s appointment has become effective immediately and he will serve as the Voting Trustee until CP exercises control of KCS with the authorization of the STB. While the Voting Trust is in place, CP and KCS continue to operate as separate companies.
