Results for this period are:

TOTAL TRAINS = 1218

ON TIME = 471 (39%)

LATE = 747 (61%)

AVERAGE DELAY = 50"

Of the late trains:
51% were 29" or less late;
19% were 30" to 59" late;
18% were 1' to 2' late;
11% were more than 2' late; and
1% had no arrival time shown.

BY ROUTE, WITH ON-TIME % AND AVERAGE DELAY:

CAPITOL LIMITED
#29 - 17% - 1' 09"
#30 - 30% - 52"

CARDINAL (WAS)
#51 - 23% - 52"
#50 - 8% - 1' 37"

PENNSYLVANIAN
#43 - 70% - 32"
#42 - 47% - 23"

LAKE SHORE LIMITED
#49 - 10% - 2' 15"
#48 - 20% - 52"

LAKE SHORE LIMITED (BOSTON / ALBANY)

#448 - 10% - 1' 18"

CITY OF NEW ORLEANS

ST. LOUIS CORRIDOR

(E) - 63% - 48"

BUFFALO CORRIDOR
(W) - 5% - 1' 05"
(E) - 34% - 30"

KANSAS CITY CORRIDOR
(W) - 37% - 18"
(E) - 49% - 29"


Nearly a full complement of trains was reviewed in this period with the exceptions being caused by trespasser incidents and a freight train derailment on the routes of the DET and KCY corridors.

Routes showing improvement in both measured categories included the eastbound Lake Shore Limited and BUF corridor; the westbound Cardinal and DET Corridor; and both directions of the Capitol Limited, Pennsylvanian, Crescent, and sTL and KCY Corridors.

Of the 79 trains that were more than 2' late:
Lake Shore Limited had 31;
Crescent had 11;
City of New Orleans had 5;
Capitol Limited had 4; and
Cardinal had 3.

Weakest performance was that of the westbound BUF Corridor's 5% OT with 25 dates of 0% OT, and on which the westbound Lake Shore Limited has not arrived OT @ BUF in the last 200+ trips.

While the 50% betterment in OT performance and the 12% reduction in average delay represent a substantial improvement over the dismal performance of the prior period of review, it will be interesting to see if this is the start of the long-term trend which is so sorely needed.
