70 + run KAL-CHI
Author: twropr

On Fri/Sat when the relief man is on NS' Chicago Terminal desk, we get a better idea of how the railroad could run when passenger trains get green signals.
WOLVERINE 351 left Kalamazoo at 9:56 am ET (38 min LT) and arrived Chicago on time at 10:49 am CT, passing CP 482 at 10:00.  That's 91.3 MPH KAL-482 avg and 49.6 MPH 482-CHI avg,
73.2 MPH overall.
Compare that to Mon. the 9th when 351 left KAL at 9:37, held at 482 9:45-10:01 to follow 37N, arriving CHI at 12:01 pm (1 hr 12 min LT).

Interesting comparison - dispatching does make a difference.

There are also usually fewer work windows during the weekend hours.

Does Auto Router not work during the relief shift?

Porter Interlocking is still a bit of a headache. Even after more 110 mph speeds are added to Amtrak Michigan trains, the capacity issues in Porter will still linger until a solution is administered.
