I think this time around it is partly due to Congress getting interested in what happened in Virginia. Better not to have another weekend of trains delayed 30 hours with no food and blocked toilets, so soon. Unintended consequence perhaps, but there is logic to it. Once bitten twice shy.Sorry I disagree with canceling trains just because there a chance of a winter event.
Of course, to what extent it is a staff issue both in terms of T&E and OBS and in terms of shortage of staff for getting consists ready in time is hard to tell too.
