Sorry but your wrong. Cell phones can be used to perform duty if you
have lost radio communications and you need to contact the dispatcher
or if there is no other way for the crew members to talk to each other.
An engineer can use his cell phone to call the mechanical desk if he
needs to attend to the engine outside of the cab and is being told to
work on something. Hand signals were fine when you had 5 people on a
crew. They could pass the signals up. Dont work that way anymore. 2 man
crew doesnt allow that if you are 100 cars away and cant be seen. You
sure have been doing alot of standing up for the company lately.....
