Elkhart Crew Boards

There is proposed by NS an Elkhart master crew board for Engineers & Conductors. Crew callers would no longer have a Chicago pool, Toledo/Cleveland pool or Ft. Wayne/Peru pool. All jobs would be called for from a master pool list for both positions. Granted crews would be qualified for runs and flexibility would be increased which of course is the grand plan anyway.

CN does something similar, at least on the GTW. Rather than having individual pools and extraboards, they have a giant extraboard that covers everything in every direction out of a terminal: yard, local and road trains.
