Ya your right about lots donít care to make a stand I refused to take
unsafe bad order equipment. Pulled out of service then young hot shot
jumps on and goes. I looked like the shit disturber young buck breaks
rules and gets hero biscuit. In old days guys that did that to other
employee would be blackballed. Today no one cares there bills are more
important than anyone elseís.

CSX has the lowest paid employees compared to our class 1 railroads..
Want to know why? Because of you, the employee. You settle with what
you get. Why should the union fight for your rights when you don't
care. You take it in the crapper and walk off complaining. Start
fighting for your rights and watch the pay increase. Most of you don't
have the backbone to do it. Just keep taken it in the rear and
complaining. This is 100% truth..

Follow your rules everyone. Derka is already on the property. They sit
in the bushes and watch with binoculars. They have already showed up on
a M of W team. They watched and recorded them the day before then showed
up at their job briefing the next day. No doubt anything they find will
be reported and the company will issue disciplin accordingly.

It is done to shift the expense accounts around.  Everyone is well
aware of what they are doing. So does the labor relations department.
Agreements for engineers are very clear that a through freight road
engineers can be called to do more than one class of road service in a
single tour of duty but they must be paid at the highest rate  of the
class they worked. The Chief will have crew management put in a ticket
claiming that the crew is working a local switcher job when in fact
they are not. The great lakes division is notorious for this. When
dragging in an outlawed through freight road train (ex. Q123) they are
supposed to use the symbol Q123R to identify that the train is in fact
a through freight road train. The tickets and profile will be put in as
J100/200/300 etc.  etc.  When it goes through pay it will be identified
as funds coming out of local financing. They will even go as far as
identifying the train profile as coming from a completely different
division. Many crews have called and asked payroll department personnel
why is it that their train is profiled as being re crewed on a totally
different division by a local job that isn't within a hundred miles of
where they are getting on the train. Its all for budget purposes. They
are shifting the money around. It will help balance out the division
expense accounts. As long as the crews are getting paid what their
unions have agreed upon it should be of no concern to them but many do
not like the false information being noted on their pay tickets and on
the profile of their trains. That is understandable.  Ethical behavior
is supposed to be the corner stone of our business. This kind of "Book
keeping" is shady and a horrible example of ethics.  You can be assured
that Foote and his financial officer are well aware of the tactics.  Its
all for show and balances out the division budgets. If one  division is
having more trouble than another scratching each others backs pays off
in the long run.

Can anyone explain how on gods green earth that T&E supervisors can
outright falsify information on trains that are being recrewed???  How
can they order information on time tickets, Deadhead tickets, train
profiles, job profiles, crew on duty and off duty as well as turn
points and origination and destination points to be entered in the
system with outright bogus information that is nothing more than
unethical lies!
I have never seen so many pieces of legal documents put out with
information that is just so untrue it isn't even laughable. Does the
FRA care about any of this? Does Foote and upper management care about
this? Are these supervisors so gullible that they think they can hide
the true information on all these trains and crews? It wouldn't take
one week for anyone in Jacksonville to be able to trace these trains
and the crews who worked them. The PTI service can provide GPS
information as to where their wagons traveled with the crews. Even the
information on the crew web is coming out as falsified. Anyone can
print this information off and keep it. It can be sent to the stock
holders and others who are investing in this company. What the heck is
going on???  Is everyone in this company just gone mad or has the
ethics and lying become so normal that no one knows how to tell the
truth.  I just don't understand it. Something is totally wrong here. 
What is the purpose of all this lying and covering up of trains and
their true travel times?

The one thing I learnt in thirty five years on the railroad,is donít
believe the rumour mills. Guys would just throw stuff out there to see
who would bite and how far the rumour would travel. We use to have a
saying, if you donít hear any rumours by 1800 start one. Some of the
rumour made it right across the system before being discovered as BS.

I retired last year,but now it is crazier  on the railroad. Like you
said idiots just want to get out of dodge without having done there due
diligence. So if you have an incompetent lazy conductor . And something
bad happens. Is CSX management going to try and blame the hogger to for
not making sure the conductor has all his proper paperwork. Is it the
hoggers responsibility to baby sit down he conductor ?

mean the one on the motor or under the desk! Screw camera rules. Take
pics.  Other railroads allow you to use cameras.they allow the use of
personal phones without getting off equipment and walking 25 feet away.
Just wait till someone has to get off in a damn blizzard to make an
urgent call to their family and slips and falls. Or it's pouring down
rain and lightning and 60 mph winds and they get hurt. Can't even call
PTC, mechanical or TO help desk.  CSX is nothing but a bunch of control
freaks who want to intimidate and encourage rule violations and send
out faulty equipment with obvious FRA violations. They created this
atmosphere they can live with the consequence!

Quebec disaster would not of happened if the volenteer fire department
would not of shut the power down. Then a section Forman gave the ok on
everything. So the people messing with the train was blind leading the
blind. The hogger offered to go back to his train to take care of
things. But was told no to go to bed.  But they still tried to hang him
anyways.  They said two more hand brakes on the train would of made a
difference I say not.  The hogger was found not guilty as he should of
never been charged in the first place. And transport Canada letting
them run with one man crew.  But just remember they will always try and
hang the little guy. Scape goats what they look for in these type of

Employed as: APE, for Less than 1 year

Why do you conductors take a train with out proper paperwork. I see this
seems to be the norm on csx.  I work for rr in Canada I donít move a
train and am not expected to move until I have proper paper work. There
are times I even get the crew cab and drive my train if I think it is
not right. And a lot of my trains go into interchange from Canada to
USA. If I donít have all the proper paper work. The train will not get
into USA.  Iím amazed the conductor being in charge of the train does
not get proper paper work. If there is a derailment and you donít have
paper work. The shit would hit the fan in Canada anyways. Canít believe
how laxed the rules are in USA.

FRA this, FRA that.

Go back a while & read the posts from the former FRA inspector.
Bullied, even threatened by csx terminal people in Toledo & wasn't
backed by superiors.  

But boy if a poor individual makes a mistake.....
Before 1988/89 -- just the RR got fined for violations.
Look it up

US DOT, FRA = lame ass pro-company.  Sad.

You are right 10 mph for pull by. But with all fra rules the railway
company can modify the rule if it does not undermind fra rules.  Like
numbers of hand brakes fra might say 10 but the company wants 20 on. 
Thatís what I was always told. Extra protection is companies decision.
