If they don't they will pay millions of dollars in fines or in damages to Amtrak, and possibly get their management replaced by the STB -- *and that is new*.I am "sort of" OK with lengthening the schedule if the train runs more on time, but I doubt NS will actually handle it any better.
Yes, it's sad.It's sad some of the freight RRs can't handle just 1 train in each direction, but I digress.
That's an improvement coming from NOL.I'm more disappointed they made #20 leave 2 hours later from NOL.
Get over it. It's better than what we've been subjected to on the Lake Shore Limited, in both directions, at *Amtrak's own initiative*, for years, even though Amtrak itself admits that this is unprofitable and stupid.The 11PM departure from Atlanta is terrible.
If it arrives consistently on time, it'll be OK.
