Crying, baby little bitches. Crying about doing the work that is the
whole purpose of your employment. Crying about setting out and picking
up, cry about the late calls and bad line-ups, boohoo. Most T&E
employees have no clue as to what's really going on. How it all works.

You have got to be kidding. How long have you been working for the man!
You should know the answer to that one already! As for the new rules
according to Mr. Tom Wolfe there are 26 changes to the previous rules.
So have fun reading every word of the new rules and finding them! We
have been looking for weeks and have only found 20! Some are complete
changes and other are small minor changes in wording.  

Better get started before you get written up on some petty rule change
that you missed and weren't informed of.  Oh. by the way, don't know
about your area but we only had 3 addressed in our rules class.   Could
it be because they didn't know all of them either???? I would say
YEAH!!!!!PRETTY GOOD CHANCE OF THAT!

Any reason why CSX did not offer a transition guide to their new rule
book?  The BN and UP do when they update GCOR.

Pines: obviously gates do not deter people from from trying to beat a
train.  Both the videos show the suv getting  hit on the passenger
side, so I do not know what you are looking at

A Knox County, TN woman is dead and her husband seriously injured after
their 2013 Chevrolet Equinox collided with a CSX freight train as it
came around what nearby residents describe as a “blind curve” early
Friday afternoon at the non-gated crossing of Ball Camp Road and CSX
railroad tracks just northwest of Knoxville, TN.

According to witnesses, the couple, Teresa Davis, 52, who was
pronounced dead at the scene, and Jack Davis, 58, who was being treated
for unspecified injuries at the University of Tennessee Medical Center
in Knoxville, lived just beyond the crossing, which has flashing lights
and bells but no crossing gates to help prevent tragedies such as
occurred Friday just after noon.

Numerous residents placed blame upon the crossing’s lack of gates. It
is virtually certain that lights and gates would have prevented this
incident. Both CSX and Operation Lifesaver know lights and gates are
the most effective type of protection at railroad crossings. Studies
that have been conducted over fifty years ago confirm that lights and
gates offer the ability to drastically reduce the number of
vehicle/train accidents by as much as 96%.

An unnamed respondent to the TV station said that he has “gone through
this intersection thousands of times,” and that “It needs crossing arms
and a stop sign for westbound traffic.”

Another proponent for better crossing signals was WWST-FM Star 102.1
Radio Disk Jockey Marc Anthony, who lives near and knows the victims
well. “Their son went to school with my kids, and it’s just a terrible
tragedy, so sad,” he lamented. “They were really sweet, nice people and
it’s just a terrible tragedy,” he continued.

Robert Palmer, who also lives near the ill-fated crossing which,
according to Federal Railroad Administration records, had a non-injury
accident November 22, 2010, said that “It amazes me that there hasn’t
been more wrecks down there.”

“If they put the warning up far enough ahead, maybe that will give
people enough time to stop before they get to the tracks,” continued
Palmer. “I understand there has not been a fatality there before, hence
they don’t have any gates, per se. I don’t know if this is going to
change that, but you know they need them,” he concluded.

According to FRA statistics, the crossing is used by an average of 13
CSX trains daily at a top allowable train speed of 40 mph. Well over
4,000 highway vehicles, including a half-dozen school buses, cross CSX
railroad tracks at that location.

CSX worker robbed while checking on train.

Published: Thursday, April 17, 2014 at 9:58 a.m

The employee told authorities the train had broken down and he walked
around it and checked the cars to see if everything was all right.

On his way back to the front of the train, the man said he was struck
by something and knocked out. When he woke up, his CSX portable radio
and wallet were missing.

Ocala Police Department officials said employee had injuries to the
right side of his face near his eye and right cheek. He also complained
of pain in his right shoulder and left knee. He was taken to Ocala
Regional Medical Center for further evaluation.

Conductor


Sounds to me like you might be management. I know exactly what the so
called" ambulance chase" is talking about. It started happening to me
too over a year ago.  My doctor said it was from the same thing. The
older you get the worse it will get. Cutting off the circulation from
sitting, bending your legs and arms all day causes the problems but it
is mostly aggravated by the vibrations and rocking of the engines. Crew
members need to get up and stretch throughout the trip and use back
pillows if the seat doesn't provide adequate support. Most DONT!

Law suits happen 90% of the time because equipment isn't properly
maintained. Nothing worse than a seat that is loose, leans to one
side(causing the spine to be out of line)and wont raise or lower for
proper leg length! Sounds like you have always had the perfect seat to
sit in.   I envy you(manager)  Wonder how the Big CEO would like having
to sit in a broken down, sway back seat that has his knees stuck up in
his face all day long....HA.... wont ever happen!

So what did you get fired for anyway?  Missing calls to work?  Dump one
to many cars on the ground because you knew it all?  Acting like you
were retired before you actually retired?

ATTENTION!!!!!

LISTEN UP!PAY ATTENTION!  If you are a road engineer or conductor and
have been experiencing tingling, numbness, or pain in your back, elbows
and especially the feet and hands, SEE YOUR DOCTORS NOW!  There is a
good chance you have developed the symptoms from PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY!
This is caused by constant pressure put on your nerves from being seated
to long with legs and arms bent especially pressure from arm rest. The
constant movements from lateral motions of the engines as well and
vibrations are a major cause of nerve damage. Even the slightest
movement can cause nerve damage over time.  DO NOT WAIT AROUND UNTIL
YOU HAVE NO FEELING IN YOUR HANDS OR FEET. SEE YOUR DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY
WHEN YOU START TO FEEL TINGLING AND NUMBNESS IN YOUR FEET OR HANDS.  It
can be treated if the damaged nerves can be detected. Get these symptoms
documented with your doctors as soon as possible. Occupational injury to
nerves may cause you disability later on in life.  DO NOT WAIT AROUND.
SEE YOUR DOCTORS!

Pines: you are really an IDIOT! 

SHE RAN A RED TRAFFIC LIGHT YOU MORON.  She did not even stop at the
stop bars.  The cones tell the driver of a lane closure.  YEAH lets
hear her side if the story.   While we are at it,lets pull her cell
phone records and how loud her radio was at the time of the accident. 
She has no defense but stupidity.  This woman can do some serious jail
time.  Besides child endangerment, she put hundred of people lives in
jeopardy. Maybe she needs to paint her car another color so the
engineer can see her.

Do ya think STOP, LOOK and LISTEN would have worked on this one.  

Pines there is nothing you can fabricate to blame this one on the rr. 
The facts of the video prove that she was completely in the wrong.

In your video here ----the road cones tell the driver the gates are out
of order----the signal house some idiots put right in the line of sight
----and the train the idiots have painted the same color as the
background on a cloudy, rainy day.

So why road cones? So why do the gates fail to give the 30 second
warning the plan in the signal house would call for and required by
LAW? Was the signal interconnect with the road signal faulty?

The biggest question is why you do lopsided reporting when the driver
has a mouth and his/her side isn't given.

Pines.. a road guard is the same as a guard rail  or a term used in the
military to control traffic.   If you need to protect a railroad
crossing a flagman or flagger is used. Now,  at a school crossing for
example, that would be a crossing guard. If crossing gates are OOS they
would NOT put up  cones to protect the crossing. 

Hope this helps you out.. Now don't you feel a little silly with your
comments.

Pines:  The turning lane has cones NOT the crossing gates.  The crossing
protection worked PERFECT.  Don't know what a road guard is, if you
mean a FLAGGER, don't need that either.  AGAIN, protection worked as
intended.   

Hopes this help you out
