More City of New Orleans Train-Off's
Author: 79mph

At least three more days of bus between Memphis and New Orleans.
August 12-13-14 for maintenance windows.
Will wait and see if there are any more...CN and Amtrak evidently taking it just one week at a time.
Train 59-11 stopped in Memphis this morning, will evidently become 58-12.

I'd call it "suspension". The term "train-off has a sense of permanency.

More like a “pre train-off”, or slow motion train-off.  Seems like Amtrak and CN both agree that they don’t want to be operating the CoNO.

So what's the reason, weather, lack of interest, buses?

From the news on all this downgrading crap, the title fits perfectly!
