Many of the so-called BS rules are in place account of all the FNGs the
last 20+ years.  My favorite is (after making a coupling, whatever)
someone transmitting via the radio states: ....."go ahead and back
up".....   Which way is the engineer supposed to move?

That "place of safety" is about dumbest pile of bull shit they came up
with thus far in all my years.  Maybe they will throw it out soon. 
That's like saying "I'm in the clear"...why the hell would I tell
you to back up if I'm in the way?  That previous bunch has just about
run this operation in the ground with such bull shit rules!

Read the new rule. You CAN be outside the cab at 4mph or less!
I would imagine that place of safety is next to go by the wayside.

dinner
plate.  What a goofball, criminal, convicted felon.

Pines , you ignoramus, Comments like that is why nobody takes you
seriously . You are nothing but a buffoon .  You are nothing but a joke
and a laughingstock . I am sure that the people that got your little
letter to the editor are still  laughing so hard at your stupid,
idiotic and ridiculous letter that was such a a joke.  What is even
more pitiful is you don't even realize it.  Sad, so sad...or and your
wife is still dead.

on the walk ways while moving on the engine ...... now totally legal to
get on and off moving equipment..... about only good thing about hunter,
 relaxed rules and sensible rules. Not someone did something stupid and
ban it and make it a rules violation. At least we will be able to do
our work without looking over your shoulder wondering if someone is
watching you for a hour just so they can  fail you on a O TEST.

remember, Hunter is a guy who will radically change CSX and triple the
value of the company. ALL the owners (stockholders) will be very happy.
All the common workers will be unhappy, because many will be fired.
HOWEVER, the people really hurting are all the managers who are getting
middle class, fairly smart, quality MBA pay and benefits with no
education or smarts who depend on their kinfolk for better salaries
then they could get in real life. (Staff officers). They generally
cannot qualify for McDonalds assistant manager jobs. Terminal
superintendent, division general manager, lead? trainmaster, (field
grade officers) and similar are in a real bind.The average employee was
already getting screwed by the previous management. The company grade
officers (junior trainmasters, etc.) are already getting screwed. So
everybody is in turmoil but some hurt more than others. If you are
forced into a new job you may (upon reflection) come out the same or
better, considering pay per hour, health, and work / family life
balance. The turmoil getting there is the kicker.

L@N a tie plate is that like a pickle, rams head,sissy steps, cheater
pegs, take up reel, 28 foot clearance, TDR, vtvm, vom, multi-plexer,
signal generator, crypto , o-scope, rf generator, etc...

Did you know a maintainer can take a VCR with channel 3 output
---cranks it up 80 DB with an amplifier---cuts his own channel 3
antenna--and walks out the cable looking at FSM to find the cable fault
place because they don't have a TDR. Better than the electric companies
10,000 volt thump test.The maintainer in Nevada who was a grunt with six
weeks training probably doesn't though.

Or that they can make crossing signals out of a garage door remote and
some heavy coaxial cable.

latest rumor is Hunter has put off the 1,000 manager layoff. Temporary?
Just another screw up staff will straighten up in their Trump moment of
confusion? Or a real different plan?

http://www.newsherald.com/news/20170318/woman-injured-in-2nd-train-car-collision-in-2-days?start=2

Hey Al Williams, and 33-year-old Brandon Morris of Pensacola, Google
map 30.738131,-86.364826 and look in the back yard of the sand pit at
some of the big boys that could have been in your train cab. Betcha
can't wait for some one on one time with one of those babies at the no
signal CSX crossing huh?

Woman injured in 2nd train-car collision in 2 days 
Since all 30 of 30 railroad crossings in Walton County have crossing
gates according to Federal data and gates would have to be broken to
"""drove her vehicle into the direct path of the train"""
apparently this crossing is private.Private with no train horns and the
mickey mouse signs put there by the greed ran railroad mean nothing
legally. No driver laws on private property. So the cops might want to
read the law book. Especially the part on jury tampering which the oh
look at the evil doer driver did when NO investigation has been done
is. Which should be where are the signals the greed ran railroad has
robbed MILLIONS out of our crossing budget safety funds. 

Whoops here it is Google map 30.738131,-86.364826 --- Obvious public
road sign and PRIVATE railroad crossing so the woman was almost
murdered by bad data.

well, a recent announcement from CP says they are cutting executive pay
and benefits now that EHH has left to reflect more typical industry pay
scales. They did say that EHH met the 4 year turnaround goals in just 2
years.No comment on increased stock prices.More restrictions on jet
use, etc. Just FYI.

So add prejudice to L@Ns Foamer--Liar--fake--wanna be-mommas boy---goof
ball---clown---a nobody from Idaho resume. My black friends would call
these crossings "just honkey rigged man".

Since this jury tampering picture of a truck pulling a low boy is in
about every article one would think this is mass class action on the
FHWA/state/railroad for having the wrong sign for trucks and buses for
the hundreds of collisions at these type beached whale crossings that
weren't trucks pulling low boys. How about it truckers paying huge
transportation road taxes? They are covering their major need to fix
with a $100 WRONG sign.

Section 1A.02 Principles of Traffic Control Devices
To be effective, a traffic control device should meet five basic
requirements:
A. Fulfill a need;
B. Command attention;
C. Convey a clear, simple meaning;
D. Command respect from road users; and
E. Give adequate time for proper response.

I see failures on all five requirements since the Mickey Mouse sign is
at the edge of a cliff and is for low boys only.

The picture should be a picture of the highest vehicle trapped not
lowest. Just a small detail OUR NTSB will ignore. Plus the six crossing
on the six approaches with just railroad crossing ahead signs and no
beached whale crossing at this beached whale crossing warning.

It seems many people don't understand what (IMHO) is the real
motivation behind Hunter's program. This guy started as a car
inspector. I doubt traditional management thought much of him. (Do they
show respect for any agreement employee?)There used to be a Railroad
President with initials EHH (Harriman) a national big shot widely
admired by the public, when RR presidents were in the national news,
like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet are today. Current RR presidents (and
other managers) are relative nobodies making a comfortable living in
obscurity. Yet Hunter gets national news, discussion, admiration. He is
changing the RR industry. As an older, sick man does he need to spend
his last years getting yet another bag of money? No, money is like
points in a basketball game. The points prove you are the best coach.
You are the NEW EHH for the 21st century. Nobody really cares what
presidents of BNSF, NS, Warren Buffet, etc. are doing. Everybody cares
about what our EHH does. He is spending what little time remains in his
life to prove he is the best. And, realistically, would his health
permit him to race Porsches, have teen age mistresses, ride his horses?
He has a goal, and we are just in his way. Think of Schumpeter and the
Theory of Creative Destruction. Just my humble opinion.

Kind of like we, the tax payer that is paying for all illegal aliens to
come into our country and allowed to burn OUR flag, lowlifes on food
stamps, illegal refugees flooding into our country, city mayors
allowing Black lives matter to block interstates with absolutely no
repercussions.  You mean that WE.  But WE are not the ones that a bus
driver cannot understand a road sign.

Well Train Dispatcher, for 30+ years dumber than L@N "we" would be
taxpayers. People that work that pay taxes the railroads rob blind.

I'm looking for this next one to go viral

To the editor:
I propose a Biloxi We are Railroad Bit__es parade. Invite the President
and Governor to lead the parade and have the 76 Biloxi Railroad Bit__es
trombones. The whole nine yards with some pictures of the $100 million
a year CSX CEO We the People must obviously bow to and maybe some buses
that We the People can ride in the back of. Citizens with We are Biloxi
Railroad Bit__es signs, hats, shirts.

With Full media coverage of course.
