My favorite is when a terminal reports 100% on time train departure, but hides the fact that several trains left with no cars in order to hit that first scanner to start the clock before returning to the yard for the cars.
Dont forget the bloated management team will be in place to micromanage the remaining hourly people,keep all of the emails going back and forth so they look busy.
