Nick,

I'm trying to see if I can get some updated info through a contact. The old schedule was pretty reliable and had them coming on duty at Elizabeth City around 10 am with a midday departure up to NS Portlock Yard. Believe they've readjusted it since then, moving up to an earlier departure, but then that seemed to be out the door when they whacked into drawbridge around 5 am coming back from Portlock last year.

The operation has historically been very friendly over the years. I don't do this much any more, but that is one I would actually consider calling. I believe they are using the old GP7Us, or at least one of them since they lost one of the GP38s to bridge collision. Last report from someone through there has the wrecked unit still sitting at the office in Elizabeth City.
