No telling how many guys have been disciplined for trains exceeding
Maximum authorized speed over the years.  Not to many excuses for the
Engineer as they always have a speedo.  But, what about the instances
where the engine doesn't have one on the conductor's side? Kinda hard
to tell if the train is traveling 50 or 55 mph.  CSX has millions to
spend on Executive bonuses and other unnecessary perks but they can't
spend the money to properly equip all their engines with a speedo for
both crew members.  Safety first.

At least the Indy west and East BLE Local Chairman have worked out the
6/2 rest day cycles for their Engineer's.  Hop on I-65 and go about 1
hour north and head due west.  Oh well, we know why it isn't gonna
happen there......

2014 Chairmanís Award of Excellence Winners
Each year, CSX selects its Chairmanís Award of Excellence winners from
among individuals and teams of employees who have made a significant
contribution to the companyís performance. Their projects, some taking
years to complete, cover a wide range of endeavors.

For 2014, CSX recognized nine teams and one individual with this most
prestigious award. All of the winners and their projects reflect CSXís
vision and core values as they drive improvements for our company and
its customers.

Following is a listing of the 2014 winners and their accomplishments.
Congratulations to all!

Station and Route Awareness Training Team
Scott Gray, terminal superintendent, Nashville
Scott Perret, assistant terminal superintendent, Nashville
Travis Shelton, road foreman of engines, Nashville
Meacham Bailey, manager-field training programs, Atlanta
Samantha Webb, manager-field training, Nashville

These individuals instituted the Station and Route Awareness Training
program, or START, for conductor trainees on the Nashville Division.
This innovative program establishes three days of one-on-one station
training for aspiring conductors during Phase Two of their on-the-job
training. Due in part on this program, the number of human factor train
derailments on the division decreased by more than 50 percent during a
year when the number of new-hire conductors increased by more than 50
percent. As a result STARTís success, other divisions are now adopting
the program.

HEADS UP AVON!!!


MUNOZ AND SANBORN ARE SUPPOSED TO BE IN AVON ON THE 27th. IF THEY HAVE
THE GUTS TO ACTUALLY HAVE A SIT DOWN WITH THE CREWS, DO NOT FORGET TO
POINT OUT THE SCREWING THAT IS BEING GIVEN TO THE WEST END CREWS. THE
CREWS WHO ARE BEING FORCED TO WORK OVER 10 MILES OUT OF THEIR
ADVERTISED JOB LIMITS. THE CREWS WHO ARE ON THE ROAD ALL DAMN DAY AND
AWAY FROM HOME AND THEN  HAVE TO COME HOME AND HOSTLE TRAINS FOR THE
REMOTES IN THE YARDS BECAUSE THEY CANT GO OUT OF THE YARD AREA. AND WE
SAY YARD AREA BECAUSE THE MANAGERS IN INDY CALL IT ALL TERMINAL LIMITS.
THEY ARE TRYING TO BLANKET THE ENTIRE INDIANAPOLIS AREA UNDER TERMINAL
LIMITS SO THEY CAN MAKE ALL ROAD CREWS TRAVEL TO THE OLD TRANSFER YARD
AND CRAWFORDSVILLE LINE TO SET OFF BLOCKS OF ROAD TRAINS AND SAY THEY
ARE IN THEIR RIGHTS TO DO SO BECAUSE THE CREWS ARE ASSIGNED TO DELIVER
TRAINS WITHIN THE TERMINAL LIMITS. THE TRIP RATES ARE SET. YOUR
DESIGNATED TERRITORY ON JOB ASSIGNMENTS ARE SET.  THEY ARE RAPING OUR
AGREEMENT AND THE UNION IS SITTING ON ITS ASS RIGHT NOW AS WE SPEAK AND
NOT DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT. THE CREWS ARE DOING 200 MILES OF WORK ON
180 MILES OF PAY. THEY ARE USING US AND REFUSING FAIR PAY FOR OUR
LABOR! ITS ONLY GOING TO GET WORSE!
ASK THESE TWO HOW THEY CAN WORK THE CREWS LIKE DOGS, BABY THE REMOTES
AND RAPE OUT AGREEMENT AND FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES. ASK THEM HOW CAN
THEY SIGN AN AGREEMENT AND THEN RENEGE ON EVERYTHING THEY SIGNED. ITS
GETTING REAL BAD OUT HERE PEOPLE AND YOU BETTER WAKE UP SOON. OUR UNION
IS JUST ABOUT GONE RIGHT ALONG WITH OUR UNION DUES AND THE COMPANY MAN
KNOWS IT. THEY HAVE BEEN CHIPPING AWAY AT OUR RIGHTS AND HAVE GOTTEN
AWAY WITH IT. BETTER WAKE UP!
THIS IS NO JOKE. YOU LIKE THROWING YOU MONEY IN THE SHITTER JUST TO
WATCH IT BE FLUSHED THEN GO AHEAD AND SIT ON YOUR BUTTS AND WATCH THE
WATER FLUSH! YOU BETTER START TALKING TO YOUR BUDDIES IN THE STEAL
WORKERS UNIONS AND SEE JUST HOW "SMART" THEY REALLY ARE. FIND OUT HOW
THEIR BOYS HANDLE THIS KIND OF ABUSE BY MANAGEMENT!

to order all PASSENGER TRAINS to have more than just ONE person in the
lead locomotive....it would save lives and add more jobs.....isn't
that what our over paid lying,cheating,politians are supposed to be
doing?.......looking out for US?........instead of ME......

Hey crews!!!! 

How come no one ever addresses those so called save your life alerter
that are a piece of junk half the time. They are saying they can take
place of the other crew member in the cab. How many times have you had
one that malfunctioned and went off every five seconds driving you
nuts. How many have lights flash but don't make a sound. How about the
ones with lights 3 feet above your head out of sight of vision. Some are
so loud and sporadic they could cause a heart attack and damage your
hearing. NOTHING can replace the second crew member when it comes to
safety. People wake up and start pulling this crap our of service. If
they expect it to save our lives then they better have this junk
working 100%!!!

If you're management and get arrested for DWI you will get fired.

Do you also lose your railroad retirement if you're close to retiring?


Would they have a hearing to try to help you go out on a retirement
disability or just shit can you?

Thanks in advance.

SP/UP Employee

Virlon Smoot here on the West Coast, here retired on the UP Santa
Barbara SUB after 40 years and I'm going to tell you why UP is such 
a great company. UP is basically a railfan foamer CORPORATE run
Company. We have steam trains and everything all those "BIG WIGS"
have in their offices to play with on HO guage.

CSX is a RAILROAD , run by a bunch of idiot, corporate, college, snot
nose idiots. UP needs to get rid of that MoPac mgt style and get some
younger, Hip, but strict running types in there.

Soon, everybody will be smoking grass and running trains.

Viva Santa Barbara.

Posted: 15 May 2015

As an FRA inspector, I witnessed railroad greed first hand, as well as
mistreatment of employees by managers who were poor excuses for human
beings. And during my time with that agency I saw it slipping deeper
and deeper into the pockets of railroad management. We were even
instructed to start enforcing railroad rules before enforcing our own
rules which were Federal law. And when a CSX terminal superintendent
started harassing me, the local police department had to get him off my
back because the FRA managers in Philadelphia that I worked for would
not do anything to support me. They even told me not to inspect the
Toledo Terminal that he managed.

Investigative Reporter is a troll!

His comment doesn't even make sense. As If the Engineer would/could
make  a name for himself by what? Being reckless? Stupid? As others
have said don't jump to conclusions. If he can't remember what
happened its probably because he microsleeped. An unfortunate
consequence of sleep deprivation. Which is an all too common problem in
this industry. An industry that had the benefit of a work force that
commonly had people willingly working 80 hours a week (greed factor)for
decades. But that wasn't good enough for the greedy basterds in charge.
They had to make medieval attendance policies to close any gaps where a
guy could mark off when he had enough, and needed a day or two to
recoup, and get rested or just plain caught up with the personal
necessities of life (you know, food shopping, laundry, etc.etc.) then
there's the issue of 1 man in the cab. The fact that this has gone on
for so long without the Public and Unions demanding an immediate end to
this insanely dangerous policy is mind boggling. Just think how that
would play out in the Airline Industry if they had 1 man flight crews.
And every 6/8 months a plane fell out of the sky killing everyone on
board. Because the pilot had some sort of health failure/lapse, and the
computer just didn't quite get the job done in his absence.
