Going off running time on the ZPDG2/ZG2BR.. Average for the month of December, 56hours e/b, 57hours w/b... January 58hours e/b 56hours w/b.. I didn't say anything about loading and unloading times or did I mention anything about fuel, those are running times from point to point. And only from Portland. I know the ZPTLCH is running that fast.. That is the only lane that I compare since the other traffic the UP doesn't care to have..
I am just giving ya s**t. everyone else does so I felt inclined to as well... but with that said it should be interesting seeing the Grainers over the hill again. Also i have noticed that the Kalama mty grainers have been running north and then over the scenic, my guess is to help the the congestion of the fallbridge. The only bad thing about doing this is that its creating a large crew imbalance around the NW and they have been deadheading a lot of crews. But with the loaded grain trains on Scenic would we see more MTY Kalama grainers going back on the fallbridge?
