CMQ SLR Detour Trains

Post by fogg1703 » Wed Jan 31, 2018 12:05 pm

Curious if a CMQ crew or a pilot is required for the detoured SLR trains over CMQ territory? How does SLR compensate CMQ, per car?

CMQ and CP crews are being used when the trains operate over those respective railroads, to answer your first question.

Thanks 690. Given that this appears to be a long term issue with the bridge being out, I wonder if CMQ will need to hire additional crews or adjust the timing of Trains 1 and 2 so as the two round trips/day can be accommodated with existing crews.

Could the SLR consider making this routing via the CMQ permanent?

In theory they could, but it would be extremely inconvenient locally. People around Sherbrooke want the bridge rebuilt.

I guess I'm out of the loop. What bridge is out?
