MONTREAL, March 9 (Reuters) - Canadian Pacific Railway Co Chief Executive Hunter Harrison said on Wednesday that he never made an offer for CSX and that a merger with the U.S. railroad would not work culturally.

"We met with CSX for an hour and a half," Harrison told the J.P. Morgan Aviation, Transportation & Industrials Conference in New York. "Now I hope you know me well enough to know that I'm not going to sit with someone for an hour and a half and make an offer in the dark."
