What are the crew change stations on the northbound CONO?
I think it’s Jackson MS and then I know it’s Memphis TN, and Carbondale IL. Also.... it’s the same Southbound.
It was Jackson that I was wanting to confirm.
CONO Crew changes are split between Engineer and Conductors/Assistant Conductors.
Chicago -Carbondale both C&E, then Engineers Carbondale-Memphis, Memphis-Jackson(your answer), Jackson-New Orleans.
Conductors /AC Carbondale-Greenwood, Greenwood-New Orleans.
The shorter engineer districts allow 1 engineer operations. (This is based on 2006 Trains Magazine Map)
By observation, Memphis is also a service (refueling) stop.
