So let's assess this...UP is shut down north of Moyie Springs (have they even started a "Hinkle-Sandpoint" turn yet?)..The BNSF high line is shut down, and they had some 50 coal car derailment on the MRL? You guys have All the fun!!! Seriously though,the number of trains now affected HAVE to number into the hundreds...you can only run so many detours before exhausting crews (oh wait, we ARE already there, right UP and Canadian roads??) I am just bloody fascinated HOW LONG it's going to take to FIRST get BNSF fluid again...more trains moving than parked...and THEN comes the political game of what gets moved first...(remember the urine contest north of the border with the grain not being moved fast enough for some?) One thing for certain, we are already heading to the end of March...it promises to be a long summer and a few vacations being delayed until further notice.
