Southern Tier Line Operations Impeded

Post by K4Pacific »

Controlled Sidings between Cam and Bison Yard are seemingly filled with dead trains to the likes of 1999. Can this be attributed to Conway falling down(further automation and labor strife)? I also see the PRR "Middle Div." a type of yard limit or running track too. Is there an attribution for operational disparity? Is there a solution? Your thoughts are encouraged.

Reincarnate L. Stanley Crane?

Seriously though, what is causing the labor strife? Is it lack of crews? Are there problems in the ranks?

Seems so hard to believe that such an efficient operation like Norfolk Southern is enduring this...........

Here goes:
 NS Ingate To Reopen at Ayer, MA Thursday 11/03 1200
 
Service into and out of the Ayer, MA Intermodal Terminal has been restored.
 
22K-28 that departed Chicago, IL last Friday, arrived in Ayer this afternoon and all loads have been grounded.
 
NS is planning to run 23K-03 outbound from Ayer to Chicago later tonight.
 
22K-29 is expected to arrive at the terminal after 23K departs, and customer loads will be available in the morning.
 
Since trains have begun moving again, NS is reopening the ingate at the Ayer Terminal effective at 12:01 pm tomorrow, Thursday November 3rd.
 
They will work through the backlog of traffic as quickly as possible so that customer delays are minimized.
At this time the embargo for traffic destined to Ayer remains in place.
Additional updates will be provided as the situation progresses.
