Results for this period are:

TOTAL TRAINS = 1191

ON TIME = 424 (36%)

LATE = 767 (64%)

AVERAGE DELAY = 1' 01"

Of the late trains:
47% were 29" or less late;
18% were 30" to 59" late;
18% were 1' to 2' late;
15% were more than 2' late; and
2% had no arrival time shown.

BY ROUTE WITH ON-TIME % AND AVERAGE DELAY:

CAPITOL LIMITED
#29 - 13% - 1' 15"
#30 - 3% - 1' 29"

CARDINAL (WAS)
#51 - 38% - 55"
#50 - 27% - 41"

PENNSYLVANIAN
#43 - 43% - 27"
#42 - 37% - 16"

LAKE SHORE LIMITED
#49 - 24% - 1' 02"
#48 - 45% - 1' 54"

LAKE SHORE LIMITED (BOSTON / ALBANY)
#449 - 63% - 33"
#448 - 21% - 1' 29"

CITY OF NEW ORLEANS
#59 - 68% - 1' 21"
#58 - 54% - 1' 38"

CRESCENT (WAS)
#19 - 0% - 3' 08"
#20 - 10% - 3' 01"

DETROIT CORRIDOR
(W) - 19% - 49"
(E) - 19% - 1' 04"

ST. LOUIS CORRIDOR
(W) - 45% - 48"
(E) - 40% - 50"

BUFFALO CORRIDOR
(W) - 13% - 35"
(E) - 61% - 54"

KANSAS CITY CORRIDOR
(W) - 52% - 1' 01"
(E) - 48% - 40"

Less than a full complement of trains was reviewed in this period due to programmed trackwork on the
route of the Crescent, curtailment of trhough service on the route of the City of New Orleans,
and due to a variery of operational incidents which effected various other routes.

This was the first review in which no service improved in both measured categories.

At least 61 trains departed their initial terminals too late to permit an OT arrival at destination.

Of the 117 trains that were more than 2' late: the Crescent accounted for 24, the Lake Shore Limited for 15,
and the Capitol Limited for 11.

Of the total delay minutes in this period: the STL Corridor accounted for 18%, the DET Corridor for 17%, the
Crescent for15%, and the BUF Corridor for 13%.

Also increasing is the number of trains for which no arrival time is shown, most of which are occurring at Chicago.

Seemingly, there is no relief in sight for the generally poor operations, so we do not expect any remarkable
improvement in the near future.
