Shorter trains?
Author: MacBeau

Couldn't help but notice the Capital Limited went west this morning with only four cars, not the normal six.

Yet the Chief, and maybe some other western long hauls, are running normal consists for a March lacking Easter/Passover. 
Loss of Pennsylvanian transfers west of Pittsburgh could be weighing into that, as well of its partial redundancy with the Lake Shore Ltd west of Cleveland. The CL route east of Pittsburgh has never been strong. It never was.

Yeah some trimming is going on.  The Carolinian for instance is going from 7 cars to 3, a lounge and 2 coaches.

There's a Facebook post that says the Palmetto is being temporarily annulled.  Take that for what it's worth.

 The CL 'has never been strong'. 'It never was.'        and I guess 'It ain't been neither too'      :)
