Asleep At The Wheel

Casey Jones you'd better,
watch your speed...

    "The railroad is a 24 hour a day, 7 day a week operation", many of us have been told, when requesting some extra 'rest' between jobs. Unfortunately, the people that make the railroad move, like all other people, do not operate "24 hours a day, 7 days a week".

    Anyone who's worked around the clock has either seen, or experienced first-hand, the inevitable effects of sleep deprivation. Maybe it was you, maybe it was the jitney driver, maybe it was....

    The real fun is when someone tries to explain to the crew-caller that they are too tired to go to work.

Just get use to the fact that there are thousands of ďHillary ClintonísĒ
on the railroad.  We donít give a fuck about your precious union. We
gonna get ours while the gettin is good. What are you going to do about
it....not a damn thing.  And to you idiot ass  hoggers....all your
traditions, old ways, the way it use to be, the way we did it
before...all those are done with. PTC and trip optimizer are awesome
technology that will keep us all safe...you hoggers gave up your
privilege to run trains the old way by feeling sorry for yourselves and
eating your fat ass to 600 pounds due to stress from the job...thatís
why they got people like me...ready to step up and be the future. A
Locomotive Operator.

Hogger? What the fuck is a hogger?...lol. What the hell is that? Sounds
like the railroad version of the gay biker...all big and bad , dressed
in leather chaps, ready to bend over and take it. Fucking retards.
Anyway, I called my manager the other day when the dispatcher fucked up
and didnt get us off the train in 12 hours. It seems to be the companies
new thing. Donít know what the reason is yet for it. He got me a ride
sent and were were just able to make it before we went on the law. 
Helped me get rested for a daylight run the next day. What the hell,
use their rules to your advantage. Union threives want us to meet and
turn, rumor is the big kickbacks are coming for them.

Jeeze. 

Another day of ignorant moronic posting. LOSERS!  

Warning hoggers.  Dispatchers have been ordered to ask some questions
Before you start your trip.  Loads, empties,tons, if PTC and TO is
working and if you think you have enough power to make it to your
destinatin. 
 The question about the power is a set up and can get your arss in a
sling. TM and yms have been sending trains out underpowered and they
either stall or outlaw or take hours longer because of underspeed to
get to the final destination. UNDER NO CIRCUMSATNCES SHOULD YOU TELL
THE DISPATCHER THAT YOU KNOW IT WILL BE ENOUGH POWER. IF IT IS NOT THEN
YOU WILL BE HELD LIABLE IF YOU STALL.
WHAT YOU SHOULD SAY IS.....THE POWER SHOULD BE ADEQUATE UNLESS
SOMETHING HAPPENS IN ROUTE.  DO NOT SAY ANYMORE THAN THAT.  
THROUGH TRAINS ON MAIN LINES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BUILT TO HANDLE THEIR
TRIP TO THEIR FINAL DESTINATION. 
There is a program on the computer that allows you took look up your
power rating for your territory. Most don't use it because power is
assigned out of the house and by the power desk. I have personally seen
numerous crews argue with the TMs on duty about their assigned power not
being rated adequate for their tonnage and territory. 
EVERY SINGLE TIME THEY WERE ORDERED OUT WITH THEIR ASSIGNED POWER.
Waste of time and breath. If you do use this chart make sure you tell
the dispatcher....according to the CSX power chart for my territory the
power should be ok. If not tell them it shows it is not and throw the
decision in their lap. Tell the TM before you leave that the chart
shows the power inadequate.
Hoggers are being put in a trick bag on this one. Crap is rolling down
hill.  The Tms and power desk are throwing this in our laps and passing
the buck. This is just a way to cover their butts when things go wrong
after departure. 
The BLET Has been notified about this new procedure of questioning the
engineer about his power capabilities.  Remember, say very little and
never ever say YOU THINK OR KNOW that the power is adequate.

Iíd like to know when was the last time that a so called union brother
was set up, fired or put out of service of some BS and the local took
immediate action? When was the last time a brother got put out of
service over complete BS and the local told everyone not to report for
work cause we were going to stand united for our brother?

Just got back from my roster call. Called crew management to place me
back on the board. My turn had got out but Iím going to be ready to
work in the morning if they need me. Crew management finally placed me
after acknowledging there was going to a lot of layoffs this weekend.
The trainmaster was there to and personally thanked me. Told me he knew
I was one of the ones he could count on. Union guy was there to...I
think the vice local, told him he couldnít do shit about it if he
wanted to....union...L fucking O L!!!!

FRA!

Unattended equipment-equipment left standing in such a manner that no
qualified employee is close enough to the equipment to take safe and
effective action to control its movement.

Unmanned-Locomotives or on-track equipment left standing with no
assigned employee close enough to take safe and effective action to
control its movement.

Please for the love of god tell me and everyone else how a hump yard
can pull out a cut of cars of at least 70 cars out of the track, down
and inbound lead, past a CP point and leave it standing with just the
lead locomotive tied down while the conductor gets in a wagon and goes
all the way to the other end of the yard to get in position to take
control of it with his little remote control box???? NO AIR ON THE
CARS! ONE FRICKIN BRAKE! NO BRAKE TEST! Total violation of securement
of train rule 411.  What the hell is the loop hole they are using. The
next time I leave a train tied down outside of the yard Im going to put
one handbrake on the leader and not set any air on the cars and forget
the brake test. If they say one thing they can explain why in the hell
I cant do it but they can because that is exactly what they did!
