To clarify, I wasn’t suggesting that they switch crews; I was suggesting they make that particular train a CTRail frequency, e.g. train number in the schedule (i.e. no longer a shuttle) and give Amtrak one of the CTRail frequencies that doesn’t need an extra car.
I’m sure the private contractors wouldn’t run Amtrak equipment for union rules; could an Amtrak crew run the MBB’s? They already operate SLE.
I questioned using two operators on the line, but it works in Jersey I suppose.
