NS St.Thomas operations
Author: cdn_nsfan

A friend from London told me that the NS power from the Buffalo-St.Thomas train doesn't lay over in St.Thomas anymore. Can anyone tell me what the current operating plan is for 327 and 328 ??

When I first read this thread thought: Norfolk Southern actually has operations on an island!

Yes the power lays over in St Thomas.
327 arrives anywhere from 1100-1400 setting off
at Southwold and light power back into town.

328 is ordered around 0400,lifts from Southwold,
heads up to London,then eastward to Buffalo.

How much traffic are these trains handling right now? The 327 and 328 trains I saw last fall in Woodstock had just a handful of high cubes; in fact, one of the 328s was light-engines east. I can't imagine NS could justify such weak business for long, and they've already abolished the 343-344 jobs to/from Detroit, preferring to let CN do the hauling. Does NS have any other crews based in St. Thomas?

Well here is where I have been getting some information about 327 & 328 lately, and its been from 5 to 30 cars, depending on what is going on. But since the shut down and start up I have heard its been like 15 at max and a couple times with like 1, but thats what happens. But on Monday, they brought up the Exhibit Car up to St Thomas and its actually there really early, like almost 2 weeks early for its event.
