Read an article that described how Harrison watched yard crews & timed
them. Maybe he wondered why assembling, building & switching trains (&
other things) took so long.
Shutting down humps:
No doubt these are expensive things to maintain & operate.
However, flat switching consumes more time, AND somebody, somewhere,
will have to perform the majority of the car sorting work & it won't
be done for free. Guess we'll see how it goes.
Hope everyone does the best they can, working safely. Safety First.
