My guess is a Toledo based pilot qualified only some of the GR engineers. Those GR engineers can now qualify other GR engineers over the Plymouth-Flint track. Since the GR engineers are likely qualified over GR-Plymouth, no need for a pilot on that track. There is a union contract that has provisions dealing with engineers working as a pilot. If they stay on the engine, they probably would get extra pay for Plymouth-GR. Cheaper to taxi?
