What's going on with the former SOU yards?

Post by twropr » Wed Jun 21, 2017 8:45 pm

For the past two months Amtrak's CRESCENT has been losing an hour or more every day between Atlanta and New Orleans - very few on time trains. Looking at NS yard dwell time postings http://www.railroadpm.org/Home/RPM/Perf ... ts/NS.aspx" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
shows drastic dwell time increases this month at Norris (Birmingham), DeButts (Chattanooga) and Sheffield, along with Roanoke on the N&W. With Norris reaching 51.6 hrs last week, this implies that trains are being held out, which would certainly impact Amtrak. Wonder what's going on?
