Are there less intermodal trains on the Albany Div?

RL= NJ Terminal on the River Line
CHI= Chicago area ramp
ESL= Rose Lake, IL ramp
Q115 BOS-ESTL
Q117 BOS-CHI
Q119 BOS-CHI
Q167 WOR-CHI
Q116 ESL-BOS
Q109 RL-CHI
Q157 RL-CHI
Q159 Dewitt-CHI
Q161 RL-CHI
Q169 RL-CHI
Q110 CHI-RL
Q112 CHI-RL
Q150 CHI-RL
Q152 CHI-RL
Q158 CHI-RL
Q160 CHI-RL
Q162 CHI-RL
Q164 CHI-RL
18 trains/weekday except for Sun.-Mon. From what I hear on the Mohawk radio stream I don't think any where near this many vans are running between Selkirk and Buffalo today. Seeing the way Amtrak loses time following 15,000-ton land cruisers, I can't help but believe that the vans are also being slowed down by the drag freights. Could it be that CSX's hesitation to pay maintainers to work switches at non-strategic locations during the winter, forcing everybody into a single file march, has caused velocity to decrease to the point where NS is getting more of the east-west business?
