He said the railroad is returning to a "normal operating rhythm." He just didn't mention that the rhythm is syncopated.

Of course he has created his own statistical measures that don't have any basis in history to be compared with.

This has been noticed.

Despite assurances from CSX CEO E. Hunter Harrison that the railroad has overcome service disruptions due to ongoing operational overhauls, domestic shippers say there has been no change, and tweaks to service metric reporting muddle performance visibility.

Mr. Backshop, Associated Press reports that Google is "plugging the Knotholes" in the paywall. Their AMP service will now limit the number of freebies:

HH's forced laissez-faire ROW maintenance, management shortages and delayed pickups and deliveries are side effects of his short sighted vision for this RR...but the investment return is great and these ever growing mishaps are merely colateral damage in the rush to growth in the Wall Street Casino...

It gets harder to "find the knothole" in the paywall. Good.luck:

http://www.wsj.com/articles/csx-shipper ... 1507743220

Fair Use:

..Chief Executive Hunter Harrison says his railway has never run more smoothly. Some of his largest customers disagree..........Agricultural giant Cargill Inc. said that as recently as Monday, it had to shut down a Lafayette, Ind., plant during the morning because local train crew members, having exceeded the number of hours they were allowed to work, couldn’t take its railcars. About a week earlier, a Sidney, Ohio, plant shut down for two days because it hadn’t received empty cars from CSX to load.


While I'm hardly sticking up for Yäger, this whole charade just appears to be another "shame on you".

Any of us around here who "have done this stuff for a living" know that during Fourth Quarter, this what happens with agricultural shipping. While railroads have tried to "incentivize" shippers to move their product evenly through the year figuring General Mills has demand for Wheaties through the year, the fact remains agricultural products are planted in the Spring and harvested in the Fall.
