EDAY/ED8 has been cancelled at least the last 2 days due to no power.

So do the P&W-bound cars continue to sit at EDY or does EDPO take them to Gardner? Or does a passing 28N snag them?

Both.

AYED/ED9 today got cabbed to Lawrence to recrew DJJC - neither the C or E has ever switched the place. Assume they just want to get the train closer. I bet NS loves all the PAS crews being taken for PAR trains. They really are in Triage mode.

Over 40 cars for EDAY in the class yard at Deerfield. Train not made up though account no power. About 35 cars for Deerfield at Fitch.

I feel like they'd be better off running EDAY/AYED with extra crews and just put more guys on the spare board.

How would that help the lack of available power?

It doesn't help the lack of power, but when they dont have enough power, they can simply not call a crew, rather than pay a scheduled crew for 8 hours to ride in a cab and sit in the hotel.

Does nothing to move traffic, power wise, but its just as easy to run a train if you have power, and cheaper if you dont.

The engineer on this side of EDAY told me he has taken his train once in an entire month. More often than not they sit in the trailer for hours on end only to be sent to rescue something or to the hotel. Calculate the cost of that and you'll quickly realize why this railroad can't afford Lube Oil.
