What Doc said. I've seen people claiming both sides of this story...Thanks... but it's the same story we've been hearing for 4 months now.
You get a terminal delay penalty?I can concur. The job I am currently holding takes empty auto trains from East Brookfield, MA. to Selkirk NY. My return trip takes a loaded train, assembled in Cleveland, back to the auto site in East Brookfield. It has been so bad, some days (like today), no loads came. And when it does come, sometimes it is one or two days late. I like that I make extra money when it is messed up (putting us to work past our call window), but I feel a lot better when I am on a schedule.
There are 2 trains on their way today, totally about 190 railcars of automobiles, with another train coming tomorrow. The holiday weekend doesn't help with lack of crews due to an outbreak of holiday flu. I should be in Selkirk waiting for a train home, but with only 1 Chief for the entire division (use to be 4), they told me to stay home. Well, I will still get paid, because my work is going to be covered by someone else!ChooChooman, Mine is a Blue/Black Outdoorsman with 20s on Black rims next load try to get it on there for me. HaHa I'm in NH and it will come through your area. I'm glad someone posted the link. I thought they were just clueless, probably still are any way. I'm 13 weeks from ordering it with no solid date of delivery, it changes everyday.
