Be safe donít leave the terminal if your air pressure is not right
up,and you have the proper calibration. If your air is not up call the
tm to get the car shop to drive the train for leaks, could be a number
8 vent value stuck open, or a emergency portion or service portion. You
could have several bleed rods stuck open or a hose gasket. Or everything
I mentioned safety first is the company policy.

Hh started the reign of terror at cn cp now CSX. Hh and the likes
figured out that you can terrorize employees intimidate and manipulate,
them up to a point before they crossed the line into criminal
harassment. At cp if a person called in sick a manager would show up at
his house to talk to the employee to see if they where really sick.
Upsetting the employee and his family. They really crossed the line in
a lot of areas, they really intimidated employees to areas that where
unheard of. Hand delivering disciplinary letters to a employees home.
Randomly taking employees for drug testing when it was not warranted,
the list goes on. Now that management created a work atmosphere of no
employees trusting them. Management wants employees to forget the
treatment they received. But the employees have a long memory and the
good old days of working together is long gone. As soon as a new
employee starts it does not take long before they are threatened and do
not stick around. All as I can say is employees be creative and try and
stick it to CSX anyway possible. Nothing is to small it all adds up
stick it to CSX management all you can and donít stop.

Conductor

You were right. The flat cars with the patrician down the middle is a
center beam car. A wood rack car can come in several styles but
basically have the same idea. A flat with metal poles attached to the
sides help hold the poles, logs, lumber etc. on the car. You can google
pictures of both types of cars on line. Just look up flat center beam
cars and wood rack cars used on the railroad.
That new rule also says not to run over 50 with gons loaded with stump
wood. we have all talked about it and have decided if we have any gons
loaded with any wood in them we are running them 50. We are not sure
exactly what stump wood is. We seen lots of gons with poles, ties, cut
up ties, chips, ets. so we aren't taking any chances. the hell with
this outfit. They cant even put info on a work order making sure you
know if you have empty flats in your train if they are  bulkhead.
Instead of making the conductor watch the whole train go by we're
saying screw it and running 50.

What the heck is a flat car with a center beam. I thought it was those
cars with the partition down the middle like I've seen carrying
lumber. The new speed chart for cars says you can't run 60 with empty
center beam cars or loaded or empty wood rack cars. So the cars I see
with lumber/boards are wood rack not center beam. No trainmaster knows
the difference. We need some damn pictures of these cars so we know the
difference.  This is just bull crap.

I'm amazed some of you guys have a job. Surely not smart enough to read
and comprehend. 
The system bulletin clearly states it is updating rule 4400 which is
equipment handling / equipment speeds. EQUIPMENT SPEEDS !  Has nothing
to do with track speeds. How could any of you idiots possibly read this
and think now you can run 70 with an intermodal train or any other
listed. It even states in the 2nd paragraph I think, that timetable or
special instructions may further limit speeds. It's only how fast the
equipment can be allowed to go. Don't know how to make that any
clearer. There's also a rule that states where different speeds are
listed the lowest speed will govern. 

While I'm at it, regarding you short pool guys who are always whining
you need paperwork for a pickup, it's pretty obvious you are wasting
time to have delays so you make overtime, same as you do when I'm
following you running 35 mph on approaches. If there aren't hazmat
then you only need to know how many you got. But, by the way, if you
leave the ORIGINATING TERMINAL, there is also a rule that states ONLY
the chief dispatcher may authorize you to depart without proper
paperwork. 

Did you also know that a brake slip IS NOT REQUIRED ON CARS PICKED UP
LINE OF ROAD, doesn't mean a class 1 doesn't have to be done, but a
brake slip isn't necessary. Another common delay tactic....

Some of you on here are an embarrassment, please read your rule books.
The second rule discusses the hierarchy by the way....

Black and white in our operating rules book. When rules and special
instructions are in conflict, special instruction supersede rules.

You've been gone awhile. We don't go by stations where I work. Our
timetables tell us what our allowable track speeds are. Our rules tell
us what is the allowable speed for specific kinds of trains and their
makeup... Funny thing about all of this is the trains that can now run
60 on our 60 mph track instead of 50 are still running 50 because
almost all of them have cars in them that are still restricted to 50
per the new train speed chart! Guess its better than nothing!

just to clarify something for y'all T&E operating folks. I know most of
you know this, but it may help some newbies better understand.
This has to do with mainline speeds, which you have been discussing.

First off, a TT covers basically 2 components, 1. Station pages and 2.
TT Special Instructions. 

Your speeds in the TT appear on the Station Pages, and are the Maximum
allowable speeds also referred to as Normal speed. Normal speed is the
max allowable on block signal system tracks. 
Bulletin orders, current and Summary, can modify those speeds up or
down. Therefore, your Bulletin orders are more current and supercede
your TT station page listed speeds. When the new TT revision is put
out, the speeds which have been permanently modified by Bulletin
order(s) will become permanent in the TT. Then the Bulletin process
starts all over again  because speeds will change over time, higher or
lower. 
When it comes to TT Special Instructions, that is a little different. A
TT Spec Inst  is something which modifies a current Rule, because the
Rule itself does not adequately cover a specific operating condition.
TT special instructions are usually tethered to a Rule number, but adds
to the Rule because the actual operating condition does not fit the Rule
perfectly. ( this also applies to other operating conditions such as Air
Brake use)
I've been gone for a very long time but there are some things one
never forgets. 
Let me know if this made sense and if you have any questions, I'll
answer them as best I can. 
Safety is of first importance.

Engineers. 

DO NOT RUN 70 MPH IN THE ST. LOUIS LINE OUT OF INDIANAPOLIS! 
read your rules. When rules and special instructions conflict SPECIAL
INSTRUCTIONS SUPERSEDE!
Your timetable special instructions do not allow you to run 70 period!
Yes, you can run 60 with approved freight but not 70. Do not act like a
hot shot and run 70 just because you have a news bulletin that changes a
rule. You will not win the charge of speeding when you go to
investigation. This is a set up. Do not fall for it. Follow your
timetable special instructions!

We only get one walk threw life. The railroad was a good place to work.
Until these hedge fund hacks took over. If a guy can find employment
where he can be happy and support his family all the power to you. To
earn a living now seems to be harder and harder. Our standards are
still better than in some countries. If a person can leave the job
stress at work and not take it home your much better off. Try stick it
out at the job your in good luck.

At the railroad I work at Hh broke every rule, forced managers to do
everyoneís work forced overtime. All as we could do day after day would
put grievances company laughed at us. But we got the last laugh because
Hh was in violation of the collective agreement and he ended up paying.
We never got discouraged when we got beat up. Day after day we put
grievances and the arbitrator seen what the company was doing,
intimidating everyone. At the end of the day people got there jobs back
with full pay. Hundreds of thousands of dollars where paided  out to
make everyone whole. You just canít stop the fight,Rome was not built
in a day.
