Old heads,

Got a question for you seeing you have seen and heard it all. 

Why would a dispatcher tell a crew(sitting out of yard waiting to come
in) to write down a 6 digit number with no reason why or what its for.
Didnt match anything in disp bulletins and wasnt a car number in their
train. Other train crews heard it too and were wondering why.
Dispatcher never did tell them what it was for just ordered them to do
it.  Got any ideas? We are all baffled.

Just what in the hell was this guy thinking.  Texting and standing in
the middle of the tracks.  Obviously he did not have a smart phone to
tell him that a train was coming.  Pinetard, this sounds like something
one of your family members would do... DUH!!!! 


MENLO PARK, Calif.—An executive with the PayPal online payment service
has been struck and killed by a commuter train in Northern California.

San Mateo County coroner's investigators on Sunday identified the
victim as 39-year-old Eric Salvatierra of Palo Alto. 

The San Francisco Chronicle ( http://bit.ly/yCmeRK) says Salvatierra
was killed by a Caltrain on Friday morning in Menlo Park. 

Commuter rail officials say he was standing on the tracks when he was
hit by a northbound train. The death is being investigated. 

Salvatierra was a vice president of online payment service PayPal,
where he's worked for about five years.

breaking the law and trying to derail a train.  They should be put in

PER CSX FUEL CONSERVATION HANBOOK.

Handbook was sent out to all engineers on csx and was meant to be used.


Dispatchers were supposed to get this book as well and are supposed to
incorporate train pacing into their everyday "dispatching"
actvities,

Per csx rules if a line of road train is stopped for more than 30
minutes the dispatcher is supposed to let you know how long you will be
there and you are to shut down all but one loco(isolate in cold
weather).

Dispatchers responsiblities per csx:

They should have understanding of fuel conservation practices related
to loco and train movement and apply them.
Must have basic knowledge of how to efficiently utilize motive power
and...
SHOULD PLAN TRAIN MEETS SO THAT UNNECESSARY TRAIN STOPPING IS
MINIMIZED. INSTEAD OF STOPPING A TRAIN THE DISPATCHER SHOULD USE TRAIN
PACING! The dispatcher should provide anticipated length of delay to
the engineer. The engineer when notified WILL THEN PACE THE
MOVEMENT(OPERATE AT REDUCED SPEED). 
When this doesnt happen its the engineers call as when to reduce speed
for a good meet according to radio transmissions received from other
trains.  
Per csx managment: On level tangent track, reducing speed from 50 mph
to 40 mph will save 16% in fuel. Not only does csx want you to reduce
speed when you can to save fuel, but they encourage it! Do not let a
dispatcher intimidate you into running your train faster than you feel
is safe to handle your train properly.
Per the FRA, you can not be forced into running your train faster than
you feel is necessary to safely move your train.
Faulty power, unresponsive dispatchers,weather, slow orders, work
areas, bad radios, inaccurate detectors, jumpy eot's, farming season,
excessive traffic and pedestrians(parades,etc.) and to many other
things to mention, can alter the way YOU HANDLE YOUR TRAIN! Most of all
remember you are the one who has to answer all the questions if anything
goes wrong. You are the one who is sitting there when they down load
that black box!  NOT THE DISPATCHER! They only know bits and peices of
what going on out there from what they hear on the radio. They cant see
the big picture from their monitors. You went to engineer school. You
took the training and you are the one holding the license to run that
train. ITS YOUR CALL!

Hey Robert:

It's Friday night...and unfortunately you won't get lucky this
weekend either...so perhaps you can scour the Internet for news of the
great oppressors murdering innocent idiots.

When you find it, feel free to post it and make yourself look like a 
fruitcake or wait until you can post something that has some substance.

producing more "fir and smoke" than the "Fat Man" and "Little
Boy"

HOOVER – Ryan Phebus was arrested March 2 after Hoover Police received
four reports of a man presenting himself as a police officer then
stealing money from 10 victims.

Hoover Police Chief Nick Derzis said Phebus, 29, targeted apartment
complexes off Lorna Road. Derzis said Phebus appeared to target
Hispanics as his victims.


PhebusPhebus approached victims while wearing a shirt or jacket that
resembled a police uniform and a badge around his neck. In some of the
incidents, Phebus asked some victims for identification, and then took
money from their wallets. Others, he robbed victims at gunpoint,
according to Derzis.

After Phebus drove away in a white Chevrolet Malibu, victims called the
police and reported the robberies.

Phebus was taken into custody on March 4 around 3:40 p.m. He was
charged with four counts of first-degree robbery and one count of
impersonating a police officer. Phebus is being held in the Jefferson
County Jail without bond.

According to Derzis, additional incidents may still be unreported,
possibly from Shelby County. Hoover Police are requesting any
additional victims come forward. The Crimes Against Persons Unit may be
contacted at 739-6730. A Spanish-speaking detective can be reached at
444-7534.

Good morning Robert:

There you go again, listening to the media. 

Look at the picture...the train was headed east, the truck north.
It was struck at or slightly behind the drivers door. The exhaust
stacks are pretty obvious and the trailer is wrapped around the
engine.

Had this occurred at speed on the main, the engine would have blown
right through the truck and fire by forty or more car lengths.

I think the article said the trailer MIGHT have had diesel in it!
These guys and gals aren't Woodward and Bernstein!

Believe what you see, not what you hear!

Question, why do you think so many people are coming forward to say life
at CSX is no life at all and comparing it to a Nazi prison camp. Because
it is true. Find an employee get to know them ,ask their family , what
hardships affected their family life; you will hear stories that will
make you believe they brutalize their employees and enjoy it.

Hey Robert:

I hate to rain on your personal little one man parade...but you really
need to get a grip. Look at the picture in the video, which direction
was the train traveling? Which direction was the truck traveling? Where
was the truck hit?

Just because you can't make it fit your twisted sense of reality no
matter how hard you try to sell it, it not going to change the facts.

Posting stuff like this just makes you look loony. I told you yesterday
to pick your fights carefully. Wasting what credibility you have on
arguing the obvious just strengthens the carrier's case when it comes
to the incidents that occurs because of negligence.

Through your rantings you are the carriers' biggest advocate...so rant
on!

Well NoMoLIER --plug in to Google maps-- Hertz Local Edition near
Bartow, Florida--zoom in a little Southeast and walla there's the same
crossing without a train obstructing view. See the parallel road (road
running alongside the tracks) that you can't see with a train in the
way? See the stupid RR sign right in the truckers way making it a 110
degree turn just before or just after crossing the tracks?

Take a really close look at the track light 100 feet away that could of
had all kinds of bells/whistles going off in the toxic dump with a train
coming.

Glad to be a help keeping you straight.

Kinda like the little kid that said "why don't you just let the air
out of the tires" when the experts couldn't get the big rig unstuck
from under the RR bridge. Was the bridge too short or the road too
tall?

Hey Robert:

Would you mind sharing your drugs with me...must be some good shit!

It has you delusional if you think the Onondaga crash was at grade.
There are at several occurrences a year of high cube semis trying to go
through the Bankhead Tunnel on Highway 90, despite warning signs.
The Bankhead runs beneath the CSX main in Mobile...that makes those
accidents grade crossing accidents to, by your definition.

Please explain the 110 degree comment you made...you don't have the
slightest idea where the truck was or where it was going when it was
hit. The only thing that is perfectly clear from the video is the
driver's line of sight was unobstructed and the train was either in
emergency or just crawling along because it was just coming out of the
wye from the industrial area...that road along the tracks is
probably for RR access road.

We will chalk up your creative storytelling to your drugs...now go
watch "Thomas and Friends" and "Chuggington", you might learn
something!

I hear the FRA coming ---Coming round the bend---They haven't seen a
train wreck since I don't know when ---Whoops--They still won't
because the evidence was dozed. What a token effort.

Good thing NTSB don't go to the 20 collisions a day NoMo LIER because
you would have to take off your shoes to keep count.

The Onondaga bus crash was at grade because a bus and 100s of trucks
had struck the POS bridge while Michael Ward and crew are paying
themselves MILLIONS.

Oh the Florida crash the road was as skewed as it gets. Like a 110
degree turn the tanker driver would have been making 10 foot from the
crossing.

Glad I could keep you informed!!!
