To answer your question about the train changes it's going on
everywhere. This Foote character is doing the same roll the dice
railroading HH did. One week you pick up the next you set off. One week
you got one train symbol then it changed the next. We went through
destroying and doing away with yards and played with hump yards. Now
their chopping trains in half, rerouting, changing blocks around. Have
no idea what your doing. The work orders are a joke as ususl. Missing
pick up and set off info. Nothing unusual with this outfit.
HQ SYSTEM BULLETIN 014 DATED FEB.22-
CARS MUST NOT BE PULLED FROM INDUSTRY UNLESS LISTED IN THE ELECTRONIC
WORK ORDER DEVICE OR PRINTED CSX WORK ORDER.
TM had the nerve to jump our asses because we didnt stop at an industry
on the way to the home terminal and get cars THAT WERE NOT ON THE WORK
ORDER. Bitched we should have asked someone if the work needed to be
done. Asked him why we would challenge a system bulletin that was black
and white. No gray area. Not our fault the company screwed things up.
Quit blaming the crews for deparmental problems. Ordered us to check
with dispatch for now on. Who the hell is he to override a system
bulletin from HQ. This shit never ends. Next time I'm calling
operating rules department and finding out what they want us to do with
this conflict. Sure it will be a pass the buck answer. Same crap just a
