QUESTION:  WHY DIDN'T SOME CSX EXECS GO TO JAIL FOR STEALING FEDERAL
MONEY?  Our "wonderful" justice system---one set of laws for Joe
Average, another for millionaires / billionaires.  The fine was
ridiculously low, considering the amount of federal money CSX officials
stole.  The execs didn't pay the fine, the corp. did.

FOR OVERCHARGING 

CSX Transportation, Inc. paid $5.9 million to the U.S. Government and
11 state Governments to settle a Qui Tam suit filed by A. David Nelson,
a former CSX employee, in conjunction with Taxpayers Against Fraud, The
False Claims Act Legal Center. Mr. Nelson accused CSX of defrauding
federal and state governments by overcharging for materials used to
maintain and repair railroad crossings. While working on an audit of 
certain transactions, Nelson discovered that CSX failed to obtain the
lowest prices available for construction materials, as required by the
U.S. Department of Transportation’s Rail Highway Crossing Program. CSX
did not obtain materials through competitive bidding, established
“shell” companies through which materials could be marked up and resold
at higher prices, and inflated the number of person-hours required to
wire equipment. Mr. Nelson was rewarded $1.18 million for blowing the
whistle.

HEALTH ALERT

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE EXPOSED TO UNSANITARY TOILETS ON YOUR ENGINES
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO REPORT THESE ISSUES TO YOUR STATE HEALTH
DEPARTMENT. EVEN THOUGH YOU WORK FOR A CLASS ONE RAILROAD WHO'S
OPERATING RULES ARE REGULATED BY A FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AGENCY, YOU ARE
ALSO A CIVILIAN. THE STATE THAT YOU LIVE IN CAN CONSIDER YOU A HEALTH
RISK TO SURROUNDING BUSINESSES AS WELL AS THE COMMUNITY IF YOU ARE ABLE
TO SPREAD CONTAMINATES FROM YOUR WORK PLACE.

WHEN YOU STEP INTO A BATHROOM ON YOUR ENGINE THAT HAS SPLASHED OUT ON
THE FLOOR DUE TO POOR MAINTANANCE OF THE UNIT YOU HAVE NOW STEPPED IN
URINE AS WELL AS FECES. WHEN YOU LEAVE THE BATHROOM AND WALK AROUND THE
CAB, YOU HAVE NOW DISTRIBUTED THE CONTAMINATES ONTO THE FLOOR. WHEN YOU
PUT YOUR GRIPS AND TRAVEL BAGS ON THE FLOOR YOU HAVE NOW EXPOSED YOUR
PERSONAL BELONGINGS TO THE CONTAMINATION. YOU CARRY THESE INTO THE
HOTELS, PTI WAGONS AND INTO YOUR OWN PERSONAL VEHICLES AS WELL INTO ANY
YARD BUILDINGS. THIS IS A VIOLATION OF STATE AND FEDERAL HEALTH LAWS. IF
YOU TAKE CHARGE OF AN ENGINE IN THIS CONDITION YOU NEED TO REPORT IT TO
YOUR SUPERVISORS AND TO THE ENGINE HOUSE FOREMAN. DO NOT....I
REPEAT....DO NOT SET YOUR BELONGINGS ON A BARE FLOOR. SET THEM ON
PLASTIC BAGS. 
RETIRED FRA IS CORRECT ABOUT FILING A COMLAINT WITH YOUR
REPRESENTATIVE, BUT YOU ALSO NEED TO LET YOUR LOCAL HEALTH DEPARTMENT
KNOW OF THE CONSTANT EXPOSURES AT WORK. YOUR FAMILY PHYSICIAN MUST KNOW
ABOUT YOUR EXPOSURES TO UNCONTAINED URINE AND POSSIBLE FECES
CONTAMINATION. YOUR DOCTOR MAY NEED THIS INFO FOR FUTURE REFERENCES IF
YOU BECOME SICK AND IT IS RELATED TO EXPOSURE TO BODILY
FLUIDS/CONTAMINATES.
IF YOU DO NOT FEEL SAFE REPORTING THIS ISSUE TO YOUR LOCAL HEALTH
DEPARTMENT, YOUR PHYSICIAN CAN FILE A REPORT FOR YOU.

Score keeper:  Now that is pretty funny,  but you seem to be as clueless
as Pines.  You both have no clue what game you are playing.  Pines is
trying to hit a baseball with a football bat. He will swing and miss
and then holler FOUR....

Update at the pines verses posters ball game....

Seems that pines is at top score... 25 post with 25 morons who just
keep taking the bait. Pines seems to be able to bring them up to the
batting plate with no effort at all.  Tune in later to see how many
other posters get struck out as he keeps pitching and they keep
swinging and never get a home run. Pines is still in the game and looks
as though he is still running around the plates. When will either side
call a time out????

Pines: What the hell is a track light signal housing.  I guess if you
don't have a clue about something just make up your own terminology.  
Pines, once again, you do not drive a train.  You are pretty thick
headed when it comes to learning, aren't you?  Son, you are never
going to learn, if you do not pay attention. 

How is the ankle monitor working out.

Pines,

   One last thing before your uneducated railroad response. 

http://www.crawfordcountysheriffsdepartment.com/november-18th-through-24th-2013/
"11/21/13  Robert T. Pines, 60, Sullivan, was arrested on the charge
of Tampering With a Witness.  A warrant was issued and he remains in
custody."

   You have been asked to leave other sites like trains.com. It is so
hard for any real railroader to believe the facts you put on here. One
example is you keep talking about the lack of steering wheels on
trains. You have already served time for tampering with
evidence/witness. Sounds like you tried to put words in the mouth of
someone to help you with a frivolous lawsuit. We might be bitter at
CSX, but we are proud railroaders. CSX might just suck for some of us,
but we do our job. Our job is not to ruin and stop the income we bring
in for our families.

Pines,
   You are only helping to hurt your cause as usual. 

Your post:
"http://www.sullivanjournal.com/news/emergency_call/article_3c6c3ca6-264f-11e4-bd9a-0017a43b2370.html
Lost CSX train wondering through too fast dragging a bunch of empty
trash looking railcars gives no warning on unsecured tracks cutting
off
mans leg. Train quit horn when entered last signaled crossing (Church
Street)---tic-tic-tic-tic---brakes lock ---15 minutes later sirens"

This article also said he had a leg cut off because he was "passed
out" on the tracks. Put all the laws in place you want....you can't
prevent stupid.

Pines,
   I do feel sorry for you. I heard you lost some of your family
because they pulled their car in front of a train. I also feel sorry
for the train crew that could not avoid someone that did not
"stop-look-listen". Just because of your loss, it does not at all
make you a railroad expert. The more you keep writing proves that even
more. 
   If your goal is to shut down the railroads or elevate all crossings
and put steering wheels in trains...you are delusional. But you have
already proven that fact. Each train holds enough tonnage that hundreds
of trucks would have to carry. Does that sounds safer? Or is it safer
for a car to obey traffic laws and not drive around gates or
stop-look-listen at cross bucks?
   You post all of these reports of accidents. Please send us a link to
the report of how your family was lost. I am very interested to get all
the facts. 
    Again, I am sorry for your loss. I lost my sister in a head-on
vehicle collision, but I am not trying to get rid of cars.
