claiming miles in tie-up screen

buffalo to binghamton pool

 

212 miles � based on a trip where train and/or power originates at cp-draw and terminates at cp-bd (mp sr 213) in binghamton.this was determined using the following calculations:

*��������� cp-draw to cp-panama (via bison runner) -

����������� 419.9 � 424.7 equals 4.8 miles

*��������� cp-panama to cp-bd (southern tier line)

����������� 419.9 � 213.2 equals 206.7 miles.

*��������� total miles = 211.5since the computer doesn't deal in

����������� fractions, 212 should be claimed.

 

variables at binghamton

*��� ���� kirkwood yard, cp rail - add 4 miles (216 miles)

 

remember that while rubber tired miles don't count, miles run with light power does.also, if you go beyond the terminal limits at binghamton (cp-coles, mp sr 210.9) you should claim the additional miles plus a penalty 'ua' day.

 

variables at buffalo - train left/received at:

*��������� cp-gravity add 20 miles (232 miles)

*��������� union road (buffalo line 6.5) � subtract 18 miles (230 miles)

*��������� cp-gj � add 16 miles (228 miles)

*��������� bailey avenue (ebenezer 2.8) � add 8 miles (220 miles)

*��������� blasdell (nkp 6.5) � add 7 miles (219 miles)

*��������� smokes creek (nkp 5.7) - add 8 miles (220 miles)

*��������� ridge road (nkp 5.0) � - 7 miles (219 miles)

*��������� fy (nkp 3.7) � add 2 mile (214 miles)

*��������� frontier yard � add 7 miles (219 miles)

 

as in any situation, if you go beyond the terminal limits; east of cp-broadway, south of cp-gravity, east of mp-428 (csx-chicago line) and north of mp-14 (csx-niagara branch), you have a penalty day coming.

 

note:if you change the miles that automatically appear in the tie-up screen, you must make an explanation in the remarks area.otherwise you could be accused of falsification!
