Well, pretty much so far so good, at least as far as endpoint arrivals are concerned.


Since the schedule change, 2(5) appears to have been the worst performing (latest) at some point on its trip since the schedule change.  It got to be over 7 hours down by Rivers, MB and was in Winnipeg in the wee hours (2:21-3:40).  It went up and down from there.  4 hours and change late at Sioux Lookout, 6 hours and change late at Nakina, 3 hours and change late out of Hornepayne.  Close to on time at Parry Sound and 2 hours early in Toronto, today


It is kind of sad it has to have that kind of schedule pad, but I'd rather it be reliable on a slow schedule than ridiculously late on a faster one.


Based on the performance so far, on my upcoming trip in November I am allowing for a one night layover in Toronto as usual, and not the three night layover I was going to plan for before the schedule change.


BTW, haven't been watching 1 much since I don't typically ride it.
