Re: Why weren't crew facilities added at Norwood?

If I recall, when I was a M/M due to a large number of R-1/9s being on the D there was no hold at Bedford at all since Me-23 brake valves did not have to BIE in order for the brake handle to be removed. As more SMEEs were placed in service, it was decided to add the 1 min hold at Bedford since that is how long it takes for a SMEE to charge after a BIE to remove the handle. When I last checked when I was working over 20 years ago, all Ds had the S/B hold at Bed Pk in the timetable whether they changed crews or not.
