NS Crew Base Question

What is the home terminal for the crews who
are on trains 196 and 197 between East Wayne
and Detroit?

Thanks

I thought the crews on the Huntington District were either based in Peru or Detroit. 196/197 crews ride a van to/from Payru as needed. Only the NCD, Chicago/Fostoria base crews in the Fort.

You're right, rrnut, the crews operating those trains are out of the Peru-Detroit Interdivisional pool, home terminal is either Peru or Detroit. There was once a Fort Wayne-Detroit pool which operated 411 and 412, as well as the old 227 and 228 and 197 and 196 but it was removed several years ago. It was resurrected for a short time last winter but abolished again.

So, there is a"Toledo (Based)-Peru pool".
Is there a Bellevue (Based)-Peru pool?

Yes, Bellevue-Peru pool is also split between Peru based and Bellevue based crews. In fact, all the freight pools out of Peru are split with another terminal with the exception of the Villa Grove pool.

So, how does the mileage get get distributed between
the going home and the going away crews? Are they all
members of the same local or lodge?

Thanks

Percentage basis, based on miles each had in the original short pool days, with the exception being the Peru-Bellevue pool, which is 50-50, based on business each brought to the pool when established.

Why can't it be easy like $xx per hour from the time you punch in at the terminal till the time you get to next said terminal.

Not sure I understand, Greg, exactly what your method would be. They're based on mileage each side brought to the pool, i. e., the Detroit pool runs over both the former Detroit-Montpelier and Peru-Montpelier seniority districts. Whatever the miles were that each had makes the pool adjustment based upon the line miles each brought to the pool.

Peru-Decatur, which once ended for both sides at Tilton (Danville) Illinois, was done the same way. When the Frankfort-Decatur pool was added into the mix, Peru crews traded any rights they had in the Frankfort-Decatur pool for a bigger share of the Peru-Decatur pool, because the crews were running over Peru mileage between Tilton and Lafayette. Frankfort crews also got a percentage of the pool because of the mileage from Frankfort to Demun (Lafayette).

If the crew is based here then is the dispatcher here too?

Yes Joe, the NS Lake Division dispatcher office(and the train dispatchers needed to run it) is located at East Wayne yard inside what used to be the old NKP brick "roundhouse" that was built around 1951 to service steam engines originally. It was converted to offices sometime in the 80's I believe.

I never hear the NCD dispatcher on here even though I live within listening range of E. Wayne Yard. Or maybe I don't know who's who on there.

The only time you would hear the NCD dispatcher Joe is if he's talking to a train at Kingsland or possibly Bluffton. Winters Road is where the Huntington District dispatcher takes over. The NCD dispatcher is using radio bases a long ways from Ft Wayne, which is probably why you never hear him.
