I think I herd there would be six new crossovers installed and signaled in both direction
to accommodate the Amtrak Service

Regarding the photo made at New Bohemia -- do you know if NS has
extended Traffic Control east of Disputanta ? Used to be a rule of thumb
Crewe dispatchers used -- if a coal train didn't have a 90 minute lead on
eastbound passenger trains at Disputanta, the drag was held there until the
passenger train passed.

En route to the coast two weeks ago, a M/W gang told be they'd recently
installed a double crossover at MP 47 (west of Ivor). Must be in anticipation
of new Amtrak service to Norfolk. Thanks - Harry Bundy
