Posts from those who describe themselves as  whistleblower\corporate
office employees might be entertaining reading but lack some true
facts.   Agree, the vast majority is mole/troll BS.   People can be
gullible... the age-old quote: "There's a sucker born every minute."

MAKE AMERCA GREAT AGAIN
Want to become a multi- millionaire while performing a service to your
country? I'll show you how. First I'll show you the process then the
next post I'll show you how.
Trumps gonna drain the swamp of corrution. How does he know all the bad
guys and details that will sink their boats. Trump can't know all this
so he will reply on the people to come forward. Most of you know some
avenue of corruption but don't know how to correct it. Senator Charles
(Chuck) Grassly (R) Iowa is over the False Claims Act (whistle blower
Act). Chuck knows that the knowledge of corruption lies  within the
people. The WBA is the only law that allows the people to take action.
Chuck is pressing Trump to use whistleblowers to drain the swamp.
How does it work? A person who is aware of fraud against the government
files a whistleblower suit with the Department of Justice providing
information. A Federal Judge assigns a regulatory agency to investigate
with you. When a recovery is made from the fraud the DOJ shares 15 to 30
percent of the recovery with you

Very well written post but your content is missing. There seems to be a
difference in peoples writing and other things. Some like dogs others
cats, some like the same sex as themself while others don't. Some men
like to use the same bathroom as my wife. Some prefer good writing
skills as aposed to content. I'm from the Appalacians can you squeal
like a pig?

Well, RR managers are not very literate, nor (typically) are clerks. Dig
into their background and you often find that their pappy or other
family connection got them into management based on flunking out of the
first semester of the freshman year at a mediocre school. More recent
relatives may have squeezed through a mediocre program in a 3rd rate
school. They play video games often, and their literary aspirations run
to watching farm girl moon  on u tube. Rarely do they read Economist,
nor Forbes, although National Inquirer is a possibility, along with the
swim suit issue of Sports Illustrated or Golf Digest. Demographics
suggest they have very weak resumes and will have trouble getting non
RR jobs. Expect modest results in writing, although they may know the
correct data.

Now I know how Trump must feel, he explains what's wrong and instead of
listening the Libs. Jump down his throat on grammatical errors. LOL 
Where did the spell check guy go?
Shareholder: 
America went through an information/communication explosion which led
to the people demanding fiber-optics which telephone wire couldn't
handle. Railroads also needed fiber-optics. Problem! How do we get
fiber-optic from city to city, tower to tower and who's gonna pay for
it?  Enter West Virginia Senator Robert (KKK) Byrd (deceased).
Byrd pays for the burial of cables between cities with tax dollars
(probably from social security). Where did they bury this cable?
Railroad right of way. What's wrong with that you ask? Railroads
actually own little land but rather a right of way going thru people's
land for ingress and egress of trains. Yep! Railroads put another
utility across peoples' property without letting them know, much less
pay the land owners. Now let's just say some person with bad grammar
let's this information out to the public, what happens to our railroad
shares? SHHHH! What happens to Trumps rail infrastructure plan?

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN
Shareholder
When looking to invest in railroads, look at their investments in
infrastructure. Ocassionally you may see a refurbished engine or coal
cars but in general it's poor when crews are in cabs without heat or
cooling. How about railroads going to remote controlled trains?  Now
that shows a good investment right? Running trains non stop without a
crew who gets tired or refuses to call in.  This can be and will be
accomplished by Positive Train Control (TPC).
What must be considered is: is it the railroads making the investment
or the taxpayers? Railroads are willing to make improvements as long as
the government pays for them. I'll compile a list for you starting with
PTC.  How do we get government to pay for TPC?
You have the public make a demand of government to improve rail safety.
Example: wait on a transit train to hit a curve in PA. at 100mph and
derail. The corrupt politician points to TPC as the answer. The public
rail transportation runs on rail carriers for the most part. The BNSF
is requested (first) who says SURE we'll put in TPC as long as
government pays for it. It's not fraud, waste and abuse if it benefits
the public by $1. So do we invest in railroads who are bilking the
people as a means of infrastructure improvements to show a share holder
profit?

MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN
Share Holder
I'm still skeptical about Trump but, he is fulfilling campaign
promises. One is to stop fraud, waste and abuse. Another is to drain
the swamp.  It is difficult to do these things without insider help. As
posters you may be a hacker from India and I just some nut case. Let's
assume you represent a group of large investors and I some railroad
insider with a lot of knowledge. Now, let's talk railroads and
investments!
When looking for a company to invest in you look for future, how well
the company maintains and improves infrastructure.  Coke-Cola is a good
investment but is less risky and pays lower dividends but Coke is a safe
investment.  Let's say Coke really screws over an employee who makes
public that Coke has an ingredient that has been causing cancer for
decades.  Your Coke shares become penny stock over night, right?
With this forward we can maybe help in your decision to invest in
railroads.

By now, anyone who follows RRs at all, is well aware of the RRs
investments & plans for intermodal and likewise, the decline of the
coal traffic. Kudos to that WV senator.  After the construction work is
completed - 19 jobs.  WOO-HOO!  Sad.

Looks like Norfolk Southern two and three day dwell time is tying up
interstate commerce.
So the crap sits there for hours/days and then they get in a hurry.

Maybe I can help. I'm not a railroad employee but I do live in Prichard
and attended a meeting with WV Senator Plymale and a NS RRoAttorney to
explain this facility.
The Senator explained it this way.  We are the Gateway to the Heartland
of America.  We will be increasing the size of tunnels through our
mountains to allow double stack trailers on a flat car to get through. 
This will allow products from around the world to be unloaded in
Virginia and North Carolina ports and have a direct route through the
mountains to Chicago.  Every 170 mile Along this rail corridor will be
Inland Ports for railroads to drop shipments.  Deliveries to WalMart,
Home Depot and so on will be handled by truck.  Products from the
Heartland can easily be shipped to Europe. The reason for this facility
being in Prichard is that Prichard is the first stop on the Heartland
side of the mountains. $95 million dollars in Federal funds have been
appropriate to widen the tunnels.  The state will pay for the
construction of this this facility.  This is a huge economic boom for
the state.  When the facility is completed it will employee 19 people.

Re: Conductor
Sorry! The RRs have been running on the people's money for decades. We
vote one crook out of office and they replace him with one just as 
corrupt.  Let me ask you this:  the government is beating up on the
injuns again, taking their land for this pipe line.  Who is helping
them?
Is there any new products for RRs to ship?  Let's just turn AMERCA
into one huge shipping hub for the world. That'll do it. We been
working on this since 1492 HA!  
Watch for the government to start dredging the Mississippi in New
Orleans. This shanty town has blocked river traffic long enough.  We
already took the people living by the river and placed them all over
the country.  God help us!  Let the rumors begin.

Re: pinhead
I agree with you.  The Existing RRs must be maintained and operated as
is. Some will be upgraded to handle high speed remotes.  These will be
the new main lines, where RRs make money. The new RRs will be in the
Heartland and Canada. These trains will be remote and run at 125 mph.
Right beside the new pipe line, fiber optics and 5 lane highways each
direction.  We could tell you a lot about this but research it for
yourself and watch Trumps moves on transportation issues.
