Question: A railroad starts a new program or opens a new rail yard with
Federal Funds. Part of obtaining the Federal funds rely on a low
incident safety record. What if the railroad uses Harassment and
Intimidation to keep employees from reporting incidence and injuries to
obtain the Federal funds? Is that illegal?

Someone care to find out why a train blows a horn at a private crossing
when it's not required?

Someone care to find out why the sight distance charts for crossings is
not found on the Federal Railroad-bought Administration site and how the
f--k the railroads get to sit train speeds for sight lines that aren't
there?  http://csx-sucks.com/SiteDist.pdf

Another railroad bought pathetic cover up that will get 100s more
killed. Blind POS crossing with NO train horns and it's the persons
fault to get caught in the trap these RR hoes allow.

http://www.ntsb.gov/investigat...

Keyword being PUBLIC.

Train is approaching public crossings at grade with engine in front.
Signal starts not less than 15 seconds but not more than 20 seconds
before reaching the crossing. If movement is 45 mph or greater, signal
starts at or about the crossing sign, but not more than 1/4 mile before
the crossing if there is no sign. Signal is prolonged or repeated until
the engine completely occupies the crossing(s).

In addition, this signal is used when approaching private crossings if
pedestrians or motor vehicles are at or near the crossing. (In the
states of California, Idaho and Montana, the whistle is sounded at all
crossings, public and private.)

Let's see,  big trucks caused over 500,000 injuries and deaths compared
to the railroad 2087 crossing accidents.  166 to 1.  So it will take the
railroads over a 100 years to catch up to the idiots that drive trucks
and kill people at a rate that is staggering.  They drive trucks
without brakes and steering.  They lie on their log books.  They speed,
cut people off and think they own the road. Their trucks  ususally have
numerous violations.   Yet nobody does a thing about it.

THEY ARE THE REAL KILLERS....

I was thinking if a person posted the same thing on all 6 topic's?
Why would they do that? To make sure every one see's it? we did, now
why ? I am thinking Dickhead that is a small person with a little one
that wishes he had a large one, so he shows his ass by posting on every
topic. FRA is just lonesome.

RRJ say's some of your fellow RR's like getting out of dodge on their
rest, he says it has always been that way. Well guess what he is
CORRECT. Called turn and burn,,, make a few bucks and do it again. Then
buy a home, start a family, answer when the master calls, and put the
pain in the BANK. Retire nicely, and lick your well deserved wounds.

So it takes CSX 13 years to match the 1.3 billion miles traveled by
Wal-Mart trucks in two years. Wal-Mart had nine fatalities in 1.3
BILLION miles traveled and CSX will have over 1,300 killed at the
current CSX kill rate. Instead of safe they need blood dripping off
their website.

There's always a reason why averages are kept low. Sometimes it's not
CSX. It's about making money it's always been that way. Some of your
fellow railroaders like getting out on their rest. If you think
averages are low then go to the union meeting and bring it up.
Complaining and doing nothing doesn't work. The only thing that the
union doesn't have any say in is the gaurenteed extra board that was
one of the concessions to get it.

When CSX managers receive their annual performance appraisals, it seems
likely that employee tests and failures would be a major evaluating
factor. The same goes for on-time train departures and operating with
as few employees as possible. And it seems very unlikely that employee
morale has anything at all to do with the process. It also seems to me
that safety programs on the class one railroads have morphed into
nothing short of harassment programs. And FRA is a cheerleader for all
of this. Constant employee testing and failures make it look as if both
the railroads and FRA are really serious about safety. But the fact is
that railroads are really only serious about their stock prices and
Wall Street standings. And of course the FRA is only serious about
being a bureaucratic government agency that tries to please everyone,
especially the railroads it is supposed to be regulating. And with all
of the serious railroad accidents that have recently been occurring,
FRA's house needs to be cleaned from top to bottom. And it needs to
start focusing on how the harassment of employees and unethical call
practices are having a negative effect on safety.

Are you kidding me??? watch a game? You must not be aware that the
manpower shortage is so damn bad that no one can stay home long enough
to watch a game and if they are home they are sleeping or being woke up
by the constant ring of the phone by crew callers running rosters.  Do
you know anything about the railroad? And these links have what to do
with CSX SUCKS SUCKS SUCKS SUCKS SUCKS!

enjoy your game!

FRIEND/FAMILY......SUPERVISOR


HA!  SO WHICH POST MADE MANAGEMENT ITCH THE MOST? WHICH POST MADE YOU
COME BACK ON HERE AND TRY AND DRAW ATTENTION AWAY FROM THE TOPICS AT
HAND. LET ME GUESS...YOU WILL NOW START WITH THE LBT CRAP AND DO YOUR
BEST TO DRAW ATTENTION AWAY FROM THE REAL PROBLEMS.... WAS IT LAW? THEY
SAY SOMETHING THAT THE LAWYERS DIDNT CARE FOR?  OR MAYBE ITS FRA
RETIRED. GOT SOMEONE IN MANAGEMENTS SHORTS IN A BIND?????

GOOD!  NOW LETS TALK ABOUT HOW SOME CREW CALLERS ARE STILL CALLING
PEOPLES HOMES AND LEAVING VAGUE BOGUS MESSAGES ABOUT JOBS THEY ARE
CALLING AND HOW THE IVR SYSTEM IS STILL SET UP TO ENTRAP PEOPLE BY NOT
LETTING THEM ACCESS TRUE AND ACCURATE INFO ABOUT THEIR OWN STANDINGS
AND POOL LINE UPS AFTER THE CALLERS HAVE STARTED RUNNING THE ROSTERS.
SURE IS FUNNY HOW YOU CANT GET ANY INFO WITHOUT BEING TRANSFERED TO A
CREW CALLER FOR IT. FUNNY HOW IT ONLY HAPPENS WHEN THEY ARE RUNNING
ROSTERS AND NEED SOMEONE TO DESPERATELY MAKE THAT MISTAKE AND TALK TO
ONE OF THEM TO THEY CAN ORDER THEM ON THE JOB. SO FUNNY HOW THE IVR
SYSTEM MAGICALLY CORRECTS ITSELF AFTER THEY HAVE THE VACANT JOB FILLED.
  CAN WE ALL SAY UNETHICAL TATICS AND AGREEMENT
VIOLATIONS!!!!!!!INFORMATION MUST BE AVAILABLE TO THE EMPLOYEES ON THE
IVR SYSTEM. AGREEMENT DOESNT SAY INFO MUST BE AVAILABLE EXCEPT WHEN
CALLERS ARE RUNNING A ROSTER AND NEED TO TRAP SOMEONE! YEAH..CAN WE ALL
SAY DEVIOUS MANIPULATIVE BEHAVIOR!
