From what I have seen and heard, NS has never been happy with the service from Cross Harbor. Daily service isn't guaranteed, as there have been times when they didn't float cars. The service is also vulnerable to weather, the NYCH barge breaking down again, etc.

Awhile back it was rumored that NS would contract with CP to bring the cars up north anyway and bring them down the Hudson. If they were thinking of doing that with another railroad, I don't think they'd hesitate doing it themselves.
