Re: concerned about T&E new employees
Not to worry. As we continue to explain the " Big Picture" you will
understand how all railroad employees will bennifit. Sure, remote
control is a fact but only on EXTREME main line and yards. I'll
explain later.
As for now just understand the concept that our nation was built on the
backs of rail employees and to make us great again it must involve the
railroads.

I really do not like the future that lays in front of so many T/E
Railroad employees. Those on board will be fine, but generations in the
future will never experience the thrill of big power and big
responsibility. The Engineer only is a reality and closing in rapidly,
then the remote will take over. There is the salvation that current
employees have in attrition, and that is the answer to no one on board.
 
The Conductor or the Engineer in a truck will survive, and the hands on
folks with training in the crafts will always be there. The Prima
Donna's will be gone. Every one that can fix a locomotive will be
there, and everyone that can hook up the yard air will survive. The
Gucchi boy's will be gone.

Let's start with you.
Trump says he's going to " Drain the swamp". This includes the
corrupt agencies like the FRA who fault rail employees rather than the
railroad itself. Instead of representing a train crew who runs by a (
false) red signal) you back the railroad. Instead of regulating
railroads you work in partnership with management, passing billions of
tax dollars into the pockets of CEO's.

Attorney request for help

You took a case where a driver smacked into the side of our train?
The train was occupying the crossing and had full right of way
authority.
Seems like what we call a blood thirsty attorney. Attorneys who make a
lot of money off of the blood of other people.
Your client is being framed. We don't know all the facts yet but
she's being framed and you're a part of it.

Attorney request

My client is the wife of a preacher and was driving kids from church
to
their homes. A second woman was in the van passenger seat.  My client
ran into the side of a train engine killing the passenger and injuring
the children.
The police blamed my client and filed criminal charges. The case has
gone before a grand jury and is now headed to state court. The judge
has offered a deal to drop the charges from 7 to 5 which would keep my
client out of prison.
What is your insight?---------------

Strike-- wife, preacher, kids, church, homes. that is fluff. The GJ
said proceed and try. Easy-- your client is guilty. was she drunk? was
she licensed, come on make your case.

Making railroads great again!
How? We will gradually explain the role " Make America great again"
includes railroads. You, are the younger generation of experienced
railroaders who will be ask to take a leadership role in this new age.
M&W
You ask that whistle blowing continue on bad working conditions at CSX.
Bad conditions and change comes from the top Down, or corporate.
Ever heard "railroads can't help but make money"?  This was true
back in the day resulting in poor treatment of employees. Why change,
we will make money anyway. Railroads managed by intimidation and poor
treatment of employees. While other industries changed technologies and
treatment of its people the railroads still use managers who are
abusive. Railroads are a monopoly and don't have to change until now.
The new initiative is to rebuild our transportation infrastructure
which includes railroads. There is a lot to be changed to make this
happen. You think it's bad in the field,  try spending some time in
Jax.. If a CSX official tries to improve things he WILL be retaliated
against.

You're prayers have come up unto the Lord concerning a railroad
crossing accident that claimed the life of a dear friend and injured

There will be a man who has worked for you for a long time and will
give you instruction to this site for help to prevent you from blaiming
yourself and to realize your pain is simply a part of s larger picture
HE has put in place.

NATALBANY, La ---A Federal investigation is underway after CSX crews
willfully worked on the faulty crossing signals after a fatal crossing
collision last year. Media coverage just after showed hatcheting gates
and maintenance workers on step ladders working on the gate arms after
the double fatality.

Also under investigation is a tinker toy train boy living in his mommas
back yard in Idaho who pretends to have been a dispatcher for the Mickey
Mouse L@N railroad for over 30 years making him over 120 years old.

Our resources says the pines poster is an imposter. The MO is all wrong
for Pines.
I don't think the poster is corporate they're in meetings trying to
figure out how to stop the post on how the FRA is complicit in falsely
accusing our brothers and the public.
Corporate follow protocol!  If you don't understand contact Jim Maybe

SEE! What did I tell all of you! Here comes the fake pines. Think the
old one is still doing time.....

Guessing there are some other discussions going on here that csx isn't
liking us to talk about.  The bad publicity shit they don't like.  Keep
up the whistleblowing and the poor treatment topics!

PINTEREST
NATALBANY, La -- Two young men in a car were killed when they drove
around another car and onto train tracks, in the path of an oncoming
Amtrak train Tuesday afternoon. 

The incident occurred around 2 p.m. on Highway 1064 in Natalbany.

According to police, those killed were identified as 23-year-old Colton
Williams, who was driving; and 24-year-old Justin Lang, both from
Tickfaw. The 68 train passengers were not harmed. The train was headed
southbound.

State Police said the crossing arms were down for the train, the
signals were flashing and the train was blaring its horn. In addition,
a second car was stopped and Colton's vehicle drove around it.

"The cross rails were down, the lights were flashing," said State
Police trooper Dustin Dwight. "Witnesses reported that the vehicle
went around a second vehicle into the path of the oncoming train… and
was struck by the train."

Here is your absolute proof that Pines is absolutely clueless about
railroads.  He states on item number 7 that an 8 mph train takes 15
feet to stop.  So pinestein,  is this a coal train or 3 car Amtrak
special that you're talking about.  So what you are telling me all
trains regardless of tonnage stop at the same rate.  Pines, I didn't
think you were that ignorant but you have proved me wrong again.  

 How was that felony charge going? Have you served all of your time? 
Do you still have to wear orange jumpsuit when you go out? Are you
still under psychiatric care?

Casual observations
1. EMT broke HEPA laws
2. Sight obstructions in at least 3 quadrants in violation of Ohio
600'X50' keep crossing clear statutes. One side blocking out sight of
cross arm on the approach.
3. No train lights
4.State and railroad changed just happened to change crossing data two
weeks after. What does other train detection even mean which was no
train detection? 2011 WBAP showed 11 trains a day which went to 10
trains a week.
5. Rinky dink crossing lights and Mickey Mouse cantilever.
6. Stopping distance of a 8 mph train in 15 feet.
7. How the gate just happened to ride the storm out magically.
8. Sun visor down? Tinted windows? Sun Glasses? Visibility out of the
van?
9. Piss poor ballast maintenance.
10. Last but not least ---L@N dispatcher is in love with tinker toy
trains and his dog who he named BJ.

Dispatcher

If the person had no idea where they were because they had never driven
on the road before, and the headlights of the car didn't pick up the
reflection of the cross bucks(they all have reflective paint) and they
were driving cautiously because they were not familiar with the
territory, that still doesn't make the railroad responsible for the
actions of the driver. It would be no different if it was a 4 way stop
out in the country in the pitch black she ran into the side of another
car that took the intersection first. The railroad has the right of
way. Sorry this person was unable to see the side of an engine(not a
tank car) that had headlights and Im sure ditch lights if it was at
night. A passenger and kids in the car tells me there was a good chance
the driver was distracted. Again, that is not the railroads fault. Now
that I have responded Im sure every Pines lover and railroad "HATER"
will be on here preaching their two cents. 
Sorry posters, but the original post was just a way to open the door to
more crossing accident debates which was probably prompted by Pines!

Are you kidding us???   The woman ran into the side of a train engine
and you want some advice? Really?  Is she related to pines or are you?
And your saying she couldn't see it. Broad day light or night neither
matters. Engines usually have running lights, step lights, number
lights and headlights on. Your trying to distract posters. Go back to
the csx office and tell them to lay down and take a nap!
