NS Announces 2019 Intermodal Service Changes

Some of these changes appear to be related to already announced reduction of NS-UP steel-wheel interchange offerings (IIRC) and some are discontinuance of TOFC or International Container handling on trains that I presume will continue to operate (eg, no more international containers to be handled between Chicago and Ayer (ie, 22K/23K). In my observations, 22K/23K rarely handled anything other than 1-2 miles of JBU, Hub, or EMP domestic containers).
