Even on today Thanksgiving day both 19 & 20 have lost over an hour between Meredian and Atlanta.  Only the Meteor 97 / 22 has lost an hour on CSX today on eastern RRs .

 

Birmingham remains in the ditch.

Birmingham remains in the ditch.   

Oltmannd.  Is it a cascading problem ?

1.   Norris yard hump closed.

2.  Inbound trains from all directions cannot get into the yard in an orderly manner.

3.  Trains wait outside Norris tying up sidings.

4.  Meets become very problematic due to passing on main tracks, backing in or out of sidings, waiting for freight to enter a long enough siding to proceed.

Well #20 / 24 arrived ATL only 16 minutes late.  Guess anything is almost possible.  A check from Jan 01, 2017 show #20 only arrived ATL early 4 times.  Great stats ?  For information #19 arrived Meridian 8 times early from Jan 01.
