Tim Gilbert's work - LCL

Malcolm Laughlin <mlaughlinnyc@...>

" I planned to share some of Tim's LCL research (a whole other kettle of fish) in some way in that magazine. "

Although I strongly disagree with Tim's conclusions on car fleet distribution (more later today), I will piggyback on the above statement, with which I agree. When Tim visited our club he brought a wealth of data on C&O LCL operations. Our LCL operation is centered on Elkton, VA, not far from the actual C&O terminal at Clifton Forge. Thanks to Tim and the use of selective compression, we have a set of LCL routes that relfects the traffic flow proportions implied by the C&O data.
