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.

I need to give a heads up on a closet gay and a snitch.  This man loves
to take pics without your knowledge (especially when your nude) and
share it with coworkers thinking it’s funny.  He manipulates the system
to try to be with certain engineers. (Yes he is a conductor) He will set
you up for management to get you in trouble.  Watch out for this snitch
who wants to be everybody’s friend.  He makes fun of all of you in
these areas. (Montgomery, Birmingham, and Nashville) He is based out of
Birmingham.  He talks about golfing and jeeps.  He has 3 really good
friends who he hangs out with sully, Mayo, and stone. Please be aware
of him and make Damn sure if your in a hotel with him that you make
sure you have your curtains fully closed. Yes he likes to video you on
his phone and share it with your coworkers to humiliate you.  If you
haven’t guessed who he is yet just ask anyone in Birmingham who the
snitch and is on the train constantly with Sully.  He’s a coward, if
you confront him he will run away from you.  Just ask Billy Ledger
about him. His initials are M C B. He started out at Stuckey’s in
Hayden Alabama as a cashier and CSX hired him as a conductor. (Imagine
that) So his mentality is still with Stuckey’s, no morals and no ethics
whatsoever.  If you see him call him Ol’ Stuckey boy.

Loco 10-20:

The reason RR retirement is so good is retirement at age 60 rather than
65+

Do this retirement math.  Instead of the Tier 2 which is the railroad
retirement portion or 4.9% of your pay. If I was allowed to invest in a
401k or other retirement account drawing just 5%  annual rate of return
on $4,000 invested per year (my tier 2 was $4,700 last year) I would
have a balance after 30 years of 273k and 40 years at  496k.  Or
drawing 10% annual rate of return, it would be 693k and 1.86 million
respectively!  So, of your 4K railroad railroad retirement what is the
tier 2 portion?  2k per month?  That retirement account money would
almost assuredly go to my heirs instead of other “railroaders” who were
screwing me over for 30 or 40 years like railroad retirement will. The
point is that railroad retirement isn’t as great as it seems.

You hens are too stupid to get a refund.    All you dipshits spend more
than you make. As soon as you're not getting  that extra start or you
don't get free boots.  Ends don't meet.   Don't let your fat old
lady manage the money you make.  You'll be a lot better off.

The standard deduction is over 24000.   Being a T&E if your deductions
exceed the standard your claiming bullshit that doesn't apply or
you're one dumb motherfucker who needs to beat his fat ass lazy wife.

Anyone looking for a railroad career should look at other railroads
other than CSX. CSX is no longer a transportation company, instead
it's just a Wall Street Hedge fund and it's only priority is the
shareholders. I no longer consider myself an employee of CSX but rather
an employee of Mantle Ridge. CSX has never been a great place to work
but Foote is more ruthless and balless than Ward ever was, not that I
was a fan of the Ward and Sanborn era but Foote makes Ward and Sanborn
look like saints. So anyone looking to come work at a shitty place then
come on and apply for a job at Mantle Ridge

Opinion Wanted

It is cool riding on a train for about the first 20 minutes.   If you
have a good job with benefits and a home life.  Why would you consider
giving that up for this?   
This life sucks ass.  You ask; why don't you quit?  Well, because I'm
stuck out here.  Instead of going to college I joined the Army.  This is
about as good as I can do.  I'd trade places with you in a heartbeat.  
As bad as I hate it I have it better out here than some.  A new hire
anyone with less than say 15 years may or may not have a job at any
given time.   If you're a young man don't be foolish there will be
just one man on a train sooner than later.   There will be trains fully
automated in the next 20years.  RRers will be a thing of the past.
