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.

The scabs are showing out now. 50 guys furloughed at my terminal but
sure Trainmaster I'll take that double ticket or roster call, I'll
step up as an engineer! But but but they forced me, I had to! Bullshit.
We all know that's not true. If you take extra work when guys are
furloughed, you are a company dick sucker, plain and simple.

1) There are  restoration companies that do mold, water, etc  through
out the county that are also  licensed and trained on a product called
steramist ( read on it) they use in hospitals and many different types
of projects that needs disinfecting and set up on site offices . Its a
very easy process. They wipe down hard surfaces let the mist do its
thing then re wipe it down. They do hospital rooms in less than 45
minutes.. Im not saying every location needs this but maybe major
terminals where many engines run through a day.. Then everyone of us
should do our part keeping cabs clean and trash bags removed after tour
of duty.. We cant bark if we dont do our part to keep things clean too.


A question for everyone. at what point do we start sticking together??
Stop the bullshit. stop playing Jr high games.. This place is toxic and
blinded by the greed of money and power they also are number dependent.
We stick together and stick it too them. The power shifts a little.
example.. Dad worked for a delivery service years ago Managers told all
30 drivers no ot for anyone. At 8 hours every driver showed up with
still half full trucks and went home. They did this for 3 or 4 days..
That ended the whole no ot rule... They wanted them to work harder to
make it work. It back fired. Had 15 drivers completed their route and
the other 15 did not. Probably a different out come.. Moral of the
story is if we all stuck together we could possibly change the outcome.
If we just bitch and turn against each other the company wins

They pay the higher ups over a few million dollars a year in stock
options and can't clean our cabs, or buy us some boots. Boots wearing
out faster with all the mounting and dismounting moving equipment.
Instead of some cheap cleaning mixture bullshit for T&E,  How about
hire a professional cleaning team.   To sanitize between crew change
points. If I spend the time to clean, I'm being rushed to make a
departure time. 
 Stop all these nonsense safety briefing over the radio, it is
distracting. Take the time to have a proper safety briefing at the
beginning of the shift. Stay off the radio unless it has to do with
train movements!

Just wanted to post this. Please report any unsanitary actions itís
unanimous. No names fully confidential. If you see dirty locomotives in
cab crew rooms anywhere we must go. Please report these issues 
I know it seems they have been doing a some what if a job adding hand
sanitizer to the crew rooms however the locomotive cabs are still nasty
dirty makes it hard to pick up bleach wipes on your way in when the
stores are out to help keep from getting sick. We donít know if the
previous crew was sick getting off as you get on nothing is being done
to prevent this. Please get the word out itís quick easy and
confidential.

It seems I've caught the dreaded Covid and now I'm confined at home. I
hear from searching the internet that smoking a little ganja will lesson
the symptoms. I can't seem to be able to locate my one hitter. Can
someone please help a brother out?

If you buy a wet soggy honey bun and put it in the  microwave and turn
it on for 12 seconds you will have a whole new perspective on those
honey buns.dont disrespect the honey bun and  Now that us train masters
arent allowed team building lunch dates.. We have control of whats in

Snickerless Vending Machine? I did not mean to insult your intelligence,
if I did so my apologies!
One must realize that the lighting conditions in some of these crew
rooms is not the best. There are a lot of dim bulbs hanging out you
know! I've experienced it first hand where the company had the vendor
remove the light bulbs from their machines in an attempt to save money
on the electric bill. Brilliant, now we'll never find the damn
snickers bars.  Just an FYI. Don't bother walking across the street
for a Snickers. Sanjay told me no snickers for you! I think he might
have them all wrapped up in that towel.  Maybe you could go investigate
this further or see if the Trainmaster has time! Goodluck!

I overheard a conversation in crew room yesterday about this snicker
problem . TrainMaster said he would just buy all honeybuns in the row
next to snickers so he could get that snicker bar in the back  . LC
said shit Iíll just buy all the buns in front of snicker to get to it .
Conductor said shit Iíll go across road to dollar store and get me a
whole pack of snickers. Engineer said shit I canít walk that far , get
me a honeybun from the dollar store.
