Plainville CT crew

Postby nhhs » Thu Jan 05, 2017 6:13 pm

On an EDPL train, is plainville effectively an AFHT or is the crew taxied to Deerfield?

Also, on a PL1 is the crew given a call window of 90 minutes or two hours...? Crew members living in Deerfield area must have at least an hour and fifteen/twenty mi its drive to report on duty in Plainville.

Thanks

The EDPL crew takes rest near Plainville, yes.

There is also already a "They come to Connecticut" thread.

No call window as the job is a regular not spare job.

Maybe the question should be is there a Plainville spare board, and if not, would a E. Deerfield guy get extra time to make it?

Plainville is considered a terminal and as such has a spareboard however it is empty if no one is on vacation. If a job needed to be covered someone would get deadheaded from another terminal.
