CRRC was way behind even before the pandemic. The order is expected to be at least 15 months late, and I don't see that improving as the pandemic surges once again. I'm not sure that CRRC's Massachusetts plant can be considered to be "back to normal" at this point.

I don’t see any kind of normal happening until most people get vaccinated. Until then, I see this as a catch up game which will take time. How long? We will have to see what time says.
