On time departure time crap has been a PITA for a long time.
Fact: Dispatchers, managers, would show train departure times
whenever, maybe even before a train's locomotive power was ready. A
major pay hassle back when road crews were entitled to ITD - even
though the ITD pay rate got frozen at the 1985 scale.
[FNGs often are ignorant of the fact, or have forgotten that 15-20
min. of ITD is/was later encompassed into each daily trip rate.]
