I am just stating what actually happened. It was fortuitous luck that they had a good excuse to use for messaging. If there had been no COVID they’d have had to shut down under FRA order or continue operating either with a large daily fine or operate just one or two trains. I suspect they’d have shut down with some exciting different messaging.I thought the shutdown was needed so they could get PTC installed?
And even if the actual design and installation work was done by external contractors, such things would presumably still require active supervision by management as well as a subsequent knowledge and skills acquisition, which might require more that just skeletal staff.
In actuality they reduced their total employee population to well under two dozen. Even the marketing VP was sent on vacation.
