Stupid shit is already starting. Our train had absolutely nothing in
the paper work including in the the engineers tonnage graph that stated
our train was 50. Not a damn thing. Even TM didn't see anything. Got
to home terminal and handed off on main line. Outbound crew had flagged
as 50 and the commodity classified wrong. So we run 60 and they got to
run 50. I knew this stupid crap would happen. Exactly what everyone in
the terminal has been predicting. For now on its straight up 50 on
every train. There still is NO BULLETIN OUT STATING WE HAVE OUR ASSES
COVERED IF CSX WORK ORDER DEPARTMENT SCREWS THE INFO UP! My LC said
run 50 until system bulletin is released protecting the crews from
being blamed for their crap! This just getting old on this railroad.
Will it ever stop!!!!
