Re: Amtrak questions

If NS hadn't pulled out CP-WEST PITT it would have been pretty simple to attach the cars to the front in both directions because they'd have a siding to pull the cars out of westbound. In fact, I don't know how they can possibly make that move because there are no siding tracks in that station complex that face toward Chicago.

If Amtrak keeps the Pennsylvanian crew around the westbound Cap can pull into the station and then the east facing Pennsylvanian trainsrt can pull through CP-PITT then onto the back of the platformed Cap. Westbound the cars would be cut off and then eastbound facing Pennsylvanian trainset would pull out of its station track then back up to hook onto them. Either way they can't do this with one crew.
