Grinch 

Amen!  I'M with you on that stupid inward camera pointing straight at
your face and right in the middle of your view blocking the sight of
the track in front of you.  Your list was right on.  How intimidating
and degrading can you get sticking a camera right in front of your face
filming you.  Total bullshit.  I bet there is no one in any other job
that sits with a camera 2 feet from their face pointing straight at
them all day!  One stupid idea after another. How about the stupid side
mirror that's too thin. When you shut the window it blocks half the
mirror and you can't see crap in it. How about that damn PTC screen
reflecting in the window so you can't see a thing at night out your
window or in the mirror because of the damn reflection. I think idiots
design these things.  Yeap. One stupid thing after another!

When the banks where bailed out by tax payers, the brass still got there
bonuses. If CSX borrowed money it will most likely find its way in the
pockets of top guys, bonuses, awards, you name it. This is the way it
is done det. Is for little guys, we figure out how to pay for all this.

A holiday list of folks that need punched, in no particular order.  

* Whomever decided the alerter on the GE ES44 must go off every 4000
feet (or less). 

* The fool who decided the alerter reset must squeal hideously when
pressed.

* The moron who placed the inward facing cameras on the GE’s directly
in your forward line of sight.

* The jackass who placed the PTC screens where you must turn your head
from the direction of travel to view it.

* The stupid shit who put the “brighter than the sun” dim headlights on
the SD40 rebuilds. 

* GE software designer that allowed for no way to disable the AESS
function on all this stupid engines with “dead batteries”.  

* Ron Batory and his clueless band of nitwit inspectors. They come
around and nitpick piddly shit, and miss BIG safety issues.  Stupidity
or deliberate incompetence?

* Dispatchers who tell you nothing the whole trip, but call you all
excited to inform you that you can proceed “signal indication” at
signal you’ve been sat and stared at for an hour.  No shit Sherlock. 

* I could go on.

Markets are down world wide, this is the busiest time of year for rr.
Then I alway witnessed slow down January and February. I could measure
the state of economy by mainline traffic. The prediction is not a
recession but a stagnant economy for months to come. The Hh plan did
not work as planned for mantle but they still doubled stock value. So I
feel if mantle is going to ditch maybe 2019. And the next ceo crew will
be putting Humpty Dumpty back together again. Just like cn and cp.
after the raid. Just my opinion!!

One thing about car and locomotive dept. you never stop learning skills
welding  etc everything that involves keeping the wheels turning.
Everything we do affects the running trades to try keeping you safe by
having equipment sound. And if you running trade guys have any
questions about mechanical issues, we would be more than happy to share
information with you. It takes lots of departments to keep the machine
moving, we are all in it together for the same reasons.

Tri coupler

The company didn't want the PTC program because they didn't want to
spend the money on the signal upgrades and the installation of
software. They fought against installing the latest technology on the
braking systems for cars. Why in the hell would you think they would
spend the money on anything as dumb as a new coupler system when the
current one is doing what it has always done for years. There are more
trains running that don't have coupler problems than ones that do. And
most problems come from old age and slipping through the inspection
system. 

Is this a problem if they do? Will you lose work? Will you lose your
job?

The auto coupler you mentioned maybe for bullit trains in China japan
etc. For railways to fit all freight cars with this system would cost
billions of dollars and all railways would have to fit there cars. And
the weather conditions would have to be prestigious at the least. It
will never happen on freight. And if they could the maintance costs
would be so high that it would be a no brainer. The company would not
benefit at all.
