remote controlled train handling Covington Virginia inside mead wesvaco
when it was implemented it was told to trainmaster it was dangerous and
would not work so when it started it went from four three man shift to
eight. four,three man shifts and four two man shifts all shifts was 12
hour shifts and csx had to give up dimerge on cars being held on yard
.csx lost 100s of thousands of dollars each mounth and Covington yard
is a industrial switching yard that has been a thorn in lower
manigement side for as long as I can remember now that the papermill
can not get good service we are losing even more money but when the
bisness picks back up the onley way to keep up will be put on more
convenchional crews to ketch back up and the last time it cost two
million dollars in two mounths and when ask where the buget went they
spreed it on paper Lynchburg, clifton forge, Covington yard lost 12 of
there experionsed people in one and a half years mostly because of bad
or no management practaces hiding  brake sticks so men would have to
walk if it could not be found and you set it by hand bourdtime more
bords washelh at Covington in two years then the 18 years I had worker
there four on me for the first time in my life.threatened if I
testafyed I would get yhe time .after I wasforced to leave every

Drunk can be used for different meanings.   I have personally argued
with a functionally alcoholic while at work.   Yes, he did drink before
work and everyone knew it.  But he did his job and did it it fairly
well.   

Have I seen someone show up pissing themselves and drooling?  No.

But those times are over and we have kids running the railroad with
PHD's in Elementary Education.

Re: Radioman...   I would love to know what dispr showed up drunk
everyday and did not get fired.  I find that very hard to believe.  I
worked as a dispr for over 35 years, so I would have to know who you
are talking about.  I NEVER say a dispr drunk while on duty.

2015. He stayed on duty until the very last minute of his shift. No
ceremony or presentation was held, no more senior officials appeared.

Well Casey Jones it depends on how much they like you.  I know one
Roadmaster who was fired three times for being drunk; was rehired the
next week and finally retired with full pension.  He was liked as he
was a great golf player on the CSX golf team and no one else would have
his job.
Another Trainmaster with his buddy trainmaster was drunk, killed
another drunk by vehicle at 2:00 AM. and nothing was ever said.  

A grunt service attendant was fired for drinking on the job but a
dispatcher who came to work every day drunk managed to retire after 40
years.

Just depends on who you are.

If you're management and get arrested for DWI you will get fired.

Do you also lose your railroad retirement if you're close to
retiring?


Would they have a hearing to try to help you go out on a retirement
disability or just shit can you?

Thanks in advance.

No telling how many guys have been disciplined for trains exceeding
Maximum authorized speed over the years.  Not to many excuses for the
Engineer as they always have a speedo.  But, what about the instances
where the engine doesn't have one on the conductor's side? Kinda hard
to tell if the train is traveling 50 or 55 mph.  CSX has millions to
spend on Executive bonuses and other unnecessary perks but they can't
spend the money to properly equip all their engines with a speedo for
both crew members.  Safety first.
