When a train missed its slot,that train is at the mercy of the MN's RTC's to get over the road as safely as possible.
The New Haven Line has the most densely packed schedule even on Holidays.
After crossing over to Amtrak controlled Hellgate line to NYP,missing your slot means you are at the mercy of the Dispatcher
to keep moving safely.

At present Irma is plotted to draw a bead on downtown Atlanta. If that happens expect the Crescent to be cancelled or at least cut short. There are too many pine trees in the state that will foul NS tracks.

A: Took a minute to connect the train and then I believe they waited on an NS, or so it seemed.
