Suzannah,

Of course you are a shill for CSX Corporate, my dear.

Who in the readership do you think feels any different?


You and NoMo have to stick to the topic of "gate crossing accidents"
and the driver being at fault because once you move outside that
"zone" of safe conversation...

...you then have to defend conduct that CSX itself cannot defend.

There are serious issues of "stewardship" and "trust" not to commit
regulatory violations which affect the safety of police officers,
firefighters and paramedics and yet you can't talk about those
subjects precisely because...

...CSX has no answer themselves.

CSX has just been found guilty of firing an employee who obeyed the law
and reported worker injuries. They then told that employee he failed to
meet a Federal hearing/audiology standard when NO SUCH FEDERAL STANDARD
EXISTS.

The jury didn't buy into CSX's counterarguments; neither did the
judge who had the option of throwing the verdict out

 It does not take much to intuit that the intent of CSX was to frighten
 into silence 40 or so other employees who may have witnessed what
happened to their coworkers and leave EVEN MORE dangerous violations go
unreported.

CSX is going to be publicly confronted as to whether that doctor was
referred to the 'disciplinary committee' of his State Medical
Association for lying to a patient.

The physician first serves the patient and not the corporation....

...but the Police Chiefs are going to worry about the UNREPORTED yet
not UNKNOWN violations that may have endangered safety even more.

It is TOO GREAT A RISK to leave the CSX Corporate Officials where they
currently are

No need to apologize and I agree 100% with the underlying premises
behind your doubts.

There were most certainly the same legitimate concerns about the
all-powerful European Oil Interests in Nigeria who were contracting
with outside provinces to provide support services.

So the idea of Nigerian women stripping naked in a "shaming ritual"
may have been scoffed at in terms of "potential efficacy" against the
power of the Europeans.

A Nigerian "Brainy Smurf" may have said, "It'll never workkkkkk!"

...but it did.

Support services are now provided by local vendors

You couple a LEGITIMATE ISSUE within the arena of "public policy
formation" with people who have a demonstrated record of being willing
to make a spectacle of themselves and you have a recipe for unparalleled
success.

I don't speak for Sheriff Bratton, but he's no pushover... he stood
up to Norfolk Southern numerous times

Any local official who takes this action is going to be thrust into a
journalistic spotlight which other localities will take notice of...

...and that segues into something the railroads DON'T WANT; to wit,
more communities being clued in to their conduct.

It is the LOCAL OFFICIALS who have to be satisfied that the danger no
longer exists....

...and that danger can be LIFTED IMMEDIATELY with those 4 people in
place and rail traffic can resume.

BNSF Railway is probably the worst offender of the Big 4. I can imagine
the communities of Bellingham, WA demanding that Warren Buffet's farmer
son, the heir apparent to ethics at BH, comment on the conduct of BNSF
as his first "litmus test".

Buffet will grab a neutral corner and be furious at the BNSF executives
who were unable to capably shield his son from getting blindsided by the
conduct of BNSF.

Pauper,

Jumping around to shill for csx....boy you are rich... anyone and
everyone who has seen my post on this site since 2006 is laughing now.
You my man are not only nuts but I am now beginning to think you are on
here just to keep up the bickering.

My comments and questions have been the same since my first post. Not
one time have I ever seen pines post anything on here that would be of
any help to address one of the main problems at hand. Like you, he has
done nothing but rant about the faulty crossings, illegal
reports,coverups and blah blah. We all know it happens. It doesnt take
a rocket scientist to figure out that most people who get hit by trains
dont see them! The idiots that try to outrun my train and go around the
gates dont count in this equation. They are just plain fools.  But
those who are distracted by their phones, music, passengers or god
knows what else they are doing obviously need some other form of
warning to make them LOOK! I spent hours talking to hundreds of
children teaching them the dangers of playing on and around the tracks.
I hope one day when they get their drivers license and they are getting
ready to cross that track where the gates arent working properly that
they think back to the day they spent with me and look before they pull
infront of that train thats charging down on them! So what have you done
to try and find a solution for this? I would love to know. Just like I
posted earlier.....got any ideas!

Rome was not built in a day...

...and corporate executives don't allow the physical safety of someone
to be threatened unless they themselves are panicked about it.

This is not behavior/conduct that the railroad wants to vigorously
defend; this is conduct they don't want discussed at all...by anyone..
at anytime.

Ensuring that the "political" and "bureaucratic" apparatuses
grabbed a neutral corner and left the railroads figuratively "twisting
in the wind" was not the easiest thing in the world to engineer...

...but the "Wick Moorman $250 million polygraph challenge" should do
the trick.

No politician is going to say to trackside residences thatthey have to
put their childrens' physical safety at risk & believe what Norfolk
Southern says and yet the politicians NOT BE WILLING TO risk their own
life savings.

There are around 11 people who can be polygraphed on the UPS contract
scam.

...and then there are the missing US DOT urine forms that should
accompany every US DOT breathalyzer form.

Missing documentation kind of takes the suspense out of the outcome of
the polygraph results...but it's still great theater.

Do you think Bogdanich came up with his series Death on the Tracks on

He had an old friend from the Plain Dealer Paper who told him "If you
ever want a story do it on the railroads."  He immediately found
himself knee deep in political and corporate corruption. The truth
that
would make "Water Gate" look like child's play was never reported,

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

.....I'm familiar with where Bogdanich got his initial sourcing.

I understand that what went on underneath may not have all been
reflected in print.

There is going to be an INITIAL attempt by the railways to persuade the
locals that they are a bunch of swell individuals.

The public officials and cities I mentioned in Georgia, Ohio, &
Virginia have all had a track record of frustrating experiences with
Norfolk Southern &/or CSX

That's why they are the INITIAL GROUP that is being exposed to this;
they already know what these snakes are like.

The balance of the new introductees may need some schooling and
Bogdanich's article coupled with those of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune
on BNSF, the Press-Enterprise Article and Jennifer Brookland of NEWS 21
as well as KLAS-TV in Las Vegas and KOMO-TV in Washington State...

...all those stories serve to show that these rail executives are
snakes AND Bogdanich's articles show the Politicians and Regulators
are in bed with them

The ADMINISTRATIVE ACTION relies on conduct, not news articles.

Yet first demonstrating that these people can't be trusted by
referencing NUMEROUS journalistic articles ("you want to win a
Pulitzer? Do a story on the railroads") is a "strategy move" on my
part.

It prevents me from having to do more legwork later on.

I know exactly what I'm doing ...

The posts are FINALLY reaching a point of substance rather than name
calling. The posts (until now) have been some of the most mindless
I've ever encountered and are intentionally designed to discredit this
sight. The exceptions would be railroad buffs and those who have been
brain washed by OLI. That's not a put down, I too fell into the same
OLI "brainwash trap" in the past.

Just a thought Web-Master:
The FRA monitors this sight, while claiming to have an all-out effort
to reduce crossing accidents, while investigating less than one % of
all accidents.  The FRA donates $1 million each year to OLI to promote
crossing safety. I think the FRA should donate the $1 million annual
contribution to your sight rather than OLI.
Think of all the beer!

Wow NoMo your jumping around like a long tailed cat in a room full of
rocking chairs. You check your meds?

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Howdy Robert,
NoMo and Suzannah have to employ that "jumping around" evasion in an
attempt to shill for CSX Corporate...

...the thing is...the answers from CSX Corporate are not going to be
any better than what NoMo and Suzannah are throwing at the readership
right now....

Couple that with the fact that the "preponderance of the evidence"
threshold means that ANY FUTURE CSX "public" or "investigative"
responses get measured against "the totality of the circumstances"
motif as to whether they are "more likely true than untrue" and CSX,
Norfolk Southern, BNSF Railway, and Union Pacific all have to keep
their mouths completely shut from a strategy perspective.

The instant that any of their PR people throw out a lame excuse like
Rudy Husband did in the Herndon, PA incident and that response gets
"sliced & diced" faster than Julienne French Fried Potatoes in a
Ronco VegaMatic.

The newspaper reporters themselves jumped all over Rudy Husband's
inadequate response in the Herndon,PA incident. Couple that with the
fact that the Pennsylvania State Trooper directly contradicted the
assertions of the Norfolk Southern Police as to who was in charge of
the investigation...

...and you've got an issue that serves to show Norfolk Southern does
not hold the confidence of local officials to behave in a "trustworthy
fashion" as "stewards" are required to do.

It was not just a "transient" aka "hobo" who was affected here. It
was "rescue workers" also

The Courts are not going to side against a Police Chief or Fire Chief
who says, "we're not going to be compelled to break out our Rudy
Husband decoder rings to determine whether there is something deeper
that needs to be intuited from Norfolk Southern's response..."

 "I can't risk the safety of my police, fireman, or paramedics based
on the possibility of a similar type of response that Norfolk Southern
gave in the Herndon, PA incident..."

"Couple that Herndon response with the:
1) OSHA ruling on the EJ Harriman Award, 
2) the NTSB stating in the Gardeau/Sizerville derailment had "quietly
loosened" aka "deceptively disobeyed" track inspection standards
PLUS 3)the conduct of Norfolk Southern Internal Audit Committee
#2009-178 regarding felonious threats of physical violence made to a
whistleblower and his family who was reporting the crime of "fraud"
to the Norfolk Southern Police and regulatory violations to the FRA 

...and I am on solid ground to state that the current management of
Norfolk Southern cannot be trusted not to exceed the 100% allowable
level of danger that full compliance with the Federal Safety
Regulations allow.

I therefore make the ADMINISTRATIVE DECISION based on the standard of
proof known as "something less than a preponderance of the evidence"
to deny Norfolk Southern passage of rail traffic through my
jurisdiction until such time as I feel the threat to the safety of my
police officers, fire fighters, paramedics and constituents no longer
exists"

I, as Police Chief, have applied a much "higher standard of proof" to
Norfolk Southern's responses; to wit, "preponderance of the evidence"
in evaluating whether each response by Norfolk Southern to my
investigators is "more likely true than untrue"

Norfolk Southern can't admit to the conduct they engaged in and their
answers to the Police Chiefs current questions get evaluated under the
"more likely true or untrue" standard within the "totality of the
circumstances"

A co-morbid double-whammy to be certain.

...more "carelessness" on your part NOT UNLIKE the Google Satellite

You said then, "you can't fix stupid" about other people when you
yourself were too stupid to ascertain the Google Satellite Photo

So now you try to tweak what occurred?

You said, 'you can't fix stupid'...have you fixed your own
stupidness?

Evidently not, because you must feel that you are more clever than
someone here in the readership that you can manipulate their thinking
by avoiding topics you've been busted on and tweaking others to where
your conclusion never addressed the original issue.

Yes, it is once they see things heading south that the Institutional

___________________________________________________________________

NoMo continues:
Think the general public cares? The only thing they care about is the
cost of the products they buy that the RRs transport or when they get
held up at a crossing due to a train.
____________________________________________________________________
Correct, the general public does not care like those trackside
residents do...and you unknowingly touched upon the crux of the issue
from both "political science" and "social psychology"; to wit,

"an ORGANIZED MINORITY will always be able to subjugate an UNORGANIZED
MAJORITY; it is only when the MAJORITY begins to organize that the
MINORITY begins to freak out"

"You can't fight City Hall" yet that is what the people of Cameron
Station successfully did.

You're attempting a "Brainy Smurf" manipulation ("it'll never
workkkkk") on the people of Cameron Station who have an established
track record of not being manipulated!!

You're not smarter than these people at Cameron Station, NoMo


__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
NoMo continues:
It's a shame anyone dies at a crossing, especially when equipment
fails. But then so are drownings, infant deaths due to SIDS,
electrocutions, etc. All are preventable yet the still happen. Like I
said, people are expendable and a cost of doing business.
__________________________________________________________________
The issue for the US District Court is not people dying at crossings
which is what you & Suzannah keep jumping back to(because you &
Suzannah  know that if you venture outside that box you have to defend
conduct/misconduct that the rail executives themselves can't defend)

The issue before the US District Court Judge is whether Norfolk
Southern played Russian Roulette with the "lives"/"physical safety"
of the trackside residences in 22 US States attendant to fulfilling the
UPS contract and whether the ADMINISTRATIVE ACTION taken by the local
officials to shut down rail traffic because Norfolk Southern
intentionally went over the 100% allowable danger threshold by
intentionally violating Federal Safety Regulations
________________________________________________________________
_________________________________________________________________
NoMo continues:

All your moral outrage...where was it when the Deep Water Horizon blew
up and the Macondo Well blew out in April 2010? That incident
did more damage to the environment and impacted more people than every
U.S. RR accident combined since day one.
___________________________________________________________________

yeah...but referencing the "social psychology" & "political
science" motif above, we have a far greater concentration of
individuals in a smaller area... with a group of Cameron Station
individuals who eventually forced a City Council an attempt at
REGULATION... they'll enjoy much more success by compelling an
ADMINISTRATIVE ACTION and they've even made it easier by softening up
the City Council the first time. The Alexandria City Council does not
want to have to go through that ordeal again at the hands of the
Cameron Station folks


Successfully shut off a portion of a rail line or a few portions of a
rail line and it is like cutting off circulation by arterial
compression
______________________________________________________________________
__________________________________________________________________
NoMo continues his shill work for CSX:

The bottom line here is don't expect help from the public, they
don't
care, regardless of how many articles are written by Pulitzer Prize
winning authors. Shaming the RRs or any other corporation isn't going
to work. Think what you will but you need a political solution.
____________________________________________________________________
Actually, it is not a "political solution" and you are attempting to
assist CSX by thinking you're smart enough to manipulate the people of
Cameron Station into doing what??? ...signing a petition?...writing a
letter to their Congressman???

It is not a "political solution"; it is a LOCALIZED "administrative
action" that survives a court-applied test and prevents the railroads
from ever getting a chance to play the TRUMP CARD that they have always
won with in the past

"All this talk is getting CSX downgraded..........


CSX Corp. was downgraded by research analysts at JPMorgan Chase & Co.
from an "overweight" rating to a "neutral" rating in a report
issued on Tuesday."
------------------------------------------------------------------------
That's doubtful or to be more correct, "coincidental"

However, the $20 billion cap to be levied against each of the major
railroads is just NOT GOING TO SUFFICE to spread out $4,500 to each
resident who lives along "railroad tracks" for tort compensation due
to Russian Roulette having been played with their lives...

...no, $20 billion is not enough....

...but a few reality game shows like "Is Your Trainmaster Smarter Than
a Fifth-Grade?" and the "Wick Moorman $250 Million Polygraph
Challenge" may close the gap to some small extent.

You see, US Congressman Bill Shuster & Governor Bob McDonnell will
gladly join Norfolk Southern CEO and all the Norfolk Southern key
executives in handing over their entire net worth to be escrowed for
distribution to trackside residences in tort compensation should
Norfolk Southern lose the "Wick Moorman $250 million Polygraph
Challenge" regarding the UPS contract with Norfolk Southern.

I mean, of course Governor Bob would never ask his trackside
constituents to risk the "lives" and "physical safety" on the
less-than-credible assertions/responses by Norfolk Southern WHEN
GOVERNOR BOB won't even join in with Wick Moorman and risk his "life
savings"

I sense a Disney movie in Governor Bob walking home to his wife and
telling her, "Honey, I shrunk the bankroll!"

...and Governor Bob's angry wife saying, "Betting on Norfolk Southern
is like betting that the Washington Generals will beat the Harlem
Globetrotters... didn't you know that there are missing US DOT urine
collection forms?"

No, no... the Norfolk Southern key executives are out of a job... the
politicians are not going to avoid risking their "life savings &
pension plans" YET IN THE SAME BREATH ask the residents of Cameron
Station to risk their "kids lives"

Also, the Cameron Station residents are going to be instructed to
contact the Institutional Investors in the NYC Public Employees
Retirement Fund and instruct them to divest.

Norfolk Southern and the other 3 railroads have engendered MASSIVE TORT
LIABILITY which is going to cause the residents of Cameron Station and
later the Ohio Communities to get some productive use out of the
POLITICALLY-CONNECTED Congressmen... this MASSIVE TORT LIABILITY needs
to be footnoted on the railroads' "statement of financial position"
aka "balance sheet"...

...so there will be a YouTube Video of the Congressmen being forced by
the Ohio, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina & Virginia
residents DEMANDING that the SEC freeze Norfolk Southern assets & halt
trading in their stock until the "tort liability" for playing Russian
Roulette can be assessed.

These angry people in Cameron Station were the "real deal"; the
Alexandria, VA City Council who were the objects of their wrath were
"headed off at the pass" each time they tried to wriggle themselves
out of trouble and eventually had to shell out BIG BUCKS to an outside
consulting firm to conduct the investigation. The Cameron Station young
professionals said to the Alexandria City Council, "No way in Hades
that you people are going to investigate yourselves!"

United Parcel Service Key Corporate Executives will be informed of what
Norfolk Southern was doing to meet the terms of the UPS contract and the
people of the communities will offer those executives the ULTIMATUM; 

"terminate the contract that was used to place our families lives in
danger immediately or we will insist to "the replacement set" of
decision makers(Jonathan Rosenbaum, Mike Vahue, Lou Testa, & Dave
Nelson) for the nation's 4 major railroads that before they haul any
more cargo for UPS that all of you corporate executives who refused to
terminate the contract immediately be replaced yourselves"

That's right... the UPS Corporate Executives will not be able to move
any cargo by rail if they continue to allow the sickos at Norfolk
Southern who used that UPS contract to endanger lives.

..and when the new decision makers for the railroads are in place, if
UPS had not complied earlier, then before any UPS Cargos is allowed on
the nation's rails...the ENTIRE contingent of key corporate executives
will have to be fired/terminated...

...which ought to take about 36 hours to accomplish their removal by
the UPS stockholders.

The local communities now have a "nice & legal" predicate to shut
down rail traffic that will survive a test in US District Court...

...and those folks in Cameron Station already have an established track
record in holding their city politicians accountable because the folks
in Cameron Station are young professionals who hand out
orders/instructions in their daily jobs... they're not the "blue
collar" subordinates

They're the "real deal"; there is not a Alexandria, VA City
Councilman who would disagree.

1) SEC asset freezure/halt in stock trading
2) Norfolk Southern getting blindsided by screaming, angry UPS
executives who are getting dragged into Norfolk Southern's mess.


...and BNSF Railway & Union Pacific are in even worse shape than
Norfolk Southern

Hey Pauper:

Comment on what? Pines already answered the question..."By the way
Nomo---The Google map born on date is on the map. If you would have
stopped and looked you could have seen it. And I really doubt that
desert has changed much in 5 years."

Anything else?

Alright, Walt Bogdanich won a Pulitzer in '05...again old news.

Internet sleuth...I'll leave the sleuthing to savants like you and
Pines. You both seem better suited for it.

"...substantive change in leadership at the nation's biggest
railroads..." Now that's a good one. The only way you'll ever see
that is to buy few hundred million in stock in each carrier, then you
can demand change. Think you can convince the stockholders to help? Not
a chance...as long as the get the ROI they're looking for, they don't
care.

Think the general public cares? The only thing they care about is the
cost of the products they buy that the RRs transport or when they get
held up at a crossing due to a train.

It's a shame anyone dies at a crossing, especially when equipment
fails. But then so are drownings, infant deaths due to SIDS,
electrocutions, etc. All are preventable yet the still happen. Like I
said, people are expendable and a cost of doing business.

All your moral outrage...where was it when the Deep Water Horizon blew
up and the Macondo Well blew out in April 2010? That incident
did more damage to the environment and impacted more people than every
U.S. RR accident combined since day one.

The bottom line here is don't expect help from the public, they don't
care, regardless of how many articles are written by Pulitzer Prize
winning authors. Shaming the RRs or any other corporation isn't going
to work. Think what you will but you need a political solution.

Everything that has occurred before now is old news...like a resume,
don't tell me what you have done, tell me what you are going to do for
me!

"TO ALL POSTERS,


I am so sorry and would like to apologize before this gets out of
hand(and it will) for posting a simple little question on here...Why
dont people LOOK! If I had known it would draw out another graduate
from Harvard RR school, I wouldnt have. The question still remains and
a solution or at least a preventative measure needs to be developed. I
have suggested putting up signs with Jumbo print(no closer than 200 ft
from the crossing)that say LOOK!!! Yeah, go ahead and say
it.....STUPID
IDEA! Might distract the driver from looking ahead....Come on...You
guys
have got to have some ideas."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

...and now maybe she'll apologize for thinking she was more clever
than the balance of the readership as well as the good folk of Cameron
Station who'll begin to drift in to read these postings within the
week...
____________________________________________________________________

No one denies now nor has ever denied that the majority of crossing
accidents are caused by stupid drivers...

...the issue to people living next to the tracks and transloading
terminals is:

"is there something within the body of evidence or exigent
circumstances that can have our Police Chief or Fire Chief to be
legitimately concerned that the danger of his constituents or rescue
personnel is over the 100% threshold allowed attendant to complete
compliance with the Federal Regulations"

"Are the assertions of the railroad regarding the OSHA ruling, NTSB
ruling, Herndon, PA alleged chemical spill investigation, & criminal
acts concerning the whistleblower of Internal Audit #2009-178 more
likely to be "true" or "untrue"?

...and Susan will never get around to addressing that topic
