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.

CSX and the FRA have rules on employees working jobs they are not
qualified on. Union agreements cover pilots. CSX operating rules make
it very clear that when we work on foreign line railroads we follow
their operating rule. For the last 2 months the chiefs have been making
crews stay on trains when taking them to hand them off to other crews
who are working out of our territory and running on a foreign line. 
They are saying after they have been piloted one time by these crews
they are qualified to take the trains. One time does not make a crew
qualified. Second, CSX is not giving any maps or one single operating
rules book to anyone for these foreign lines. How the hell are they
getting away with this. Made me do it about 3 weeks ago and I didn't
learn crap about the foreign line I was on . The so called pilot crew
said they thought we were getting off the train and going home. They
had so idea we were going to stay with them and they had their regular
train ticket changed to a pilot crew ticket while they were in route to
the hand off spot.   
Is is not illegal to make crews do this when they aren't carrying any
of the foreign line railroads rules books?  No maps? We don't even
know how to read the foreign line paper work. Saw a little of it by
pilot crew but it was greek to us and we didn't understand any of it.
Is this a federal offense. I heard they are threating insubordination
charges on crews for not wanting to go if the chief finds out they have
been once.  No rules books?  NO maps? No classes?  This is called safe
running of trains?

You got it all wrong about North Baltimore, have any of you been there
to see the place?

Double leads on both ends almost a mile long on west end, mile half on

Take out the cranes and you have a perfectly flat , super flat
switching yard taylor made to pump out freight.  They will be closing
all manifest freight out of Willard, New Castle, Garrett, Toledo and
switch it there. And since its an intermodal property, all work will
be done by private contractors in the yard.

It really is closing. Think about it this way, csx intermodal has
agreements to use private contractors, utility men that aren't csx,
Carmen that aren't csx, it's all private contractors that were agreed
upon when north Baltimore opened. If the same work is done in Willard,
which is csx transportation, not csx intermodal, by csx guys that are
already there, and are going to be without work soon anyways, then they
save alot of money. Repurpose Willard, you're utilizing assets. Sell
north Baltimore, it's too small for our needs anyways, and you make a
profit to cover the changes

I told the old man it will be called "Mr.Ed Camps" there was a
misprint in the new magazine. Please disregard the previous printing. 

The new upcoming talent didn't have to be brainwashed to suck the old
man off.   They were more than willing to get and stay on their knees
the entire Mr.Ed Camp.   While one was be spanked he kept asking may he
have another.  

Be watching for me coming to a barn near you.  I'm touring the system
in December will be handing out oats,carrots and all kind of special
treats to the old man's good little boys and girls.

Has everyone got there csx magazine. This magazine would make Joseph
Goebbels smile from his nazi grave. My favorite part of the magazine is
the 2 pictures of hunter harrison. The one picture gotta be from at
least 5 years ago while he was at the CP and then there was the current
picture of him sitting in a chair at his first "Hunter Camp" with
about 30 kool-aid drinking managers behind him.this guy looks like he
is on his death bed. Funny how he has to cut costs or as he likes to
say "control costs" across the system with job cuts and furloughs,
but how much did he spend on this magazine? Paying people to interview
the kool-aid drinkers, take pictures, printing and  the postage alone
probably cost thousands. That on top of remodeling his office in
Jacksonville that's he's never at.... millions of dollars wasted for
his pet projects, but call me a brake man when I have 150 cars to
switch with 98 cuts is out of the question.

aren't going to be any originating trains anymore and Willard will
only be used for interchange with other railroads, and for block swap.
All yard jobs and all but one yardmaster are supposed to be gone. All

I know how to run a railroad I wrote the playbook.  I'm not leaving
here a failure but I'm a short timer.  There are up and coming colts
that I'm grooming for when I leave.  

Before I leave I'm going to have PTI drivers qualified to run trains. 
 They may smell like cat shit but they will work for peanuts. 

Annual rule class will be replaced by Mr.Ed camps.

Yardmasters will be running etest.

No more water,ice or crew packs.  It's your shared responsibility to
be prepared.

No more safety glasses it's a waste of time and money

Hourly rate for you donkey fuckers

I'm sick of working everyday paying every damn bill. While my wife sits
home on her fat ass talking to other rr'ers wifes about the railroad
and all of us who work out there.

I just want to say thanks to the dumbass who got all this bullshit
started by giving their bitch access to the mainframe.   Now thanks to
a few its a fucking cancer spreading across the system.  Anyone who
allows their wife on facebook's csx wifes is a damn fool.   We are not
friends we just happen to work at the same place.. My life is not your
bitches business.  Some your wives know more about what's going on
than the ones out there. 

If we get a bonus this year try to keep the bitch from finding out and
spreading the news.
