Pretty slick presentation...you might think CSX doesn't have their hand

Anyone who thinks for a New York second that any of these corridor
improvements will easy congestion on our highways is delusional. They
might take a few truck loads off which will promptly be replaced
by more cars. The congestion is a result of too many vehicles and not
enough lanes.

If the want to ease congestion on the highways it will be a high speed
passenger rail system that does it.

Rail Industry Honors Annual Safety Achievements at E.H. Harriman
2009 Was Safest Year On Record for Railroads and their Employees

WASHINGTON, D.C., May 18, 2010 – America’s railroads today honored the
industry’s safety achievements and celebrated railroads with the best
employee safety records at the annual E.H. Harriman Awards. According
to the Association of American Railroads (AAR), 2009 was the safest
year ever for railroads, with significant milestones achieved across
the board in reduced train accidents, employee casualties and grade
crossing collisions.

The awards are selected by a committee on the basis of the lowest
casualty rates per 200,000 employee-hours worked.

The nation’s railroads honored the industry’s safety achievements and
celebrated the railroads with the best employee safety records May 18,
at the annual E.H. Harriman Awards in Washington, D.C. These Norfolk
Southern employees represent the railroad’s 28,000 employees who earned

Compared with 2008, train accidents and accident rates were down 25
percent and 12 percent respectively in 2009. Employee casualties and
casualty rates were down 12 and 2 percent respectively last year
compared with 2008, while grade crossing collisions and collision rates
were down 21 percent and 9 percent respectively.

“It is the tremendous dedication and hard work of our employees that
makes rail the safest mode of transportation today,” said AAR President
and CEO Edward R. Hamberger. “Our industry continuously invests,
innovates, improves and implements systems and technology that make our
business ever safer.”

The 2009 E.H. Harriman Awards winners are as follows:

    * In Group A, comprising line-haul railroads whose employees worked
15 million employee-hours or more, Norfolk Southern received the gold
award for the 21st year in a row. CSX Transportation won the silver
award and Union Pacific Railroad the bronze award.
    * In Group B, line-haul railroads whose employees worked 4 to 15
million employee-hours, the gold award went to Kansas City Southern
Railway for the fourth year in a row. The silver award went to Metra,
the Chicago commuter railroad, while the bronze went to Canadian
National (U.S. Operations).
    * Group C includes railroads whose employees worked between 250,000
and 4 million employee-hours. The gold award went to the Buffalo and
Pittsburgh Railroad, while the BNSF Suburban Operations took the silver
and the Paducah and Louisville Railway the bronze.
    * In Group S&T, for switching and terminal companies with more than
250,000 employee hours, the Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad took the gold,
while the silver award went to Gary Railway and the Birmingham Southern
Railroad received the bronze award.

Certificates of Commendation also were awarded to four railroads with
continuous gains in employee safety improvements over a three-year
period and showing the most improvement between 2008 and 2009.
Certificates went to Union Pacific Railroad (Group A), Metra (Group B),
BNSF Suburban Operations (Group C) and the New Orleans Public Belt
Railroad (S&T).

The Harriman Awards were established by the late Mrs. Mary W. Harriman
in memory of her husband, Edward H. Harriman, an American legend in
railroading. Today, the awards are administered by the E.H. Harriman
Memorial Awards Institute, with support from the Mary W. Harriman
Foundation. Harriman winners are selected by a committee of
representatives from the transportation field and are granted on the
basis of the lowest casualty rates per 200,000 employee-hours worked.
All data is documented by the Federal Railroad Administration.

Was downsized in 2004 at age 48. While I was at CSX I was subjected to
many slanders of a personal and professional nature that many less
conscientious male employees were not treated in the same way. I
endured countless derisions on my professional opinions by unqualified
mechanical officers who in no way were educated to make. However, I
survived until 2004- a total of 13+ years. Now working in an atmosphere
where I am appreciated and not second guessed by surly, arrogant men.

It's not a trial it's an investigation. Local management are goffers
nothing more. Crap runs downhill thru the system our job is to make
sure it stops at local management but I continue to hear stupid
mistakes being made by T&E. Most were avoidable. When are people going
to stop check, recheck, then check again to avoid all the BS. Like run
thru switches if you lose sight of it while switching it needs to be
checked to make sure someone hadn't changed it. What is to prevent a
TM from changing it? That would be considered a effeciency test. Of
course the TM would be derilect in his duties to allow someone to
actually run thru it. But I've seen management do just that watch
someone violate a rule and they allowed it just so they could nail that
person. No easy answers.

A TM can not fire anyone,All he can do is take a person OOS and hold a
trial & same for a RFE, The trial transcritp is sent to the super or
the GM & they are the ones who make the final outcome on what disipline
action should be taken, But then all of them do sleep in the same bed
most of the time, At least this is what my LC told me and don,t forget
a TM or RFE are at the bottom of the mangement totem pole but as we all
know many of them think they are gods on the rr, IE the suck asses.

There's a trainmaster in Newport News called Kangaroo Jack who had a
state required breathalizer in his personal vehicles for multiple
DUI's. All anyone had to do was turn him in to the state when he was
driving a CSX vehicle on CSX property which was illegal. CSX likes to
spout ethics. At times in his personal vehicle he'ld be yelling at a
crew when his alarm would go off for him to blow in the machine he
would haul arse to not let it go off. His first name was Warren I
can't remember his last name because he was insignificant more of a
joke then anything else. He never stopped drinking he would take taxis
to hit the bars we would see him drinking at Hooter's ect...around the
hotel in Hampton which was still illegal under the state run program.

Nomo, I agree 100% with you! The railroad as we know or should I say
knew it is DEAD! These College kids are Morons who aren't even
Qualified to run a HO trainset let alone a real railroad! Even half of
the clowns who are promoted were nothing but Suck Asses before they
moved up! It is Rare to find a person who earned a Promotion on their
own! This is a Kiddie Hop Corporation! 

The same goes on at Amtrak also were all these Fired Flunkies show up
when Discharged from a Carrier! I must say it Truely Sucks here but I
also Feel for the Employees at Amtrak too who have to deal with our
trash! I had a friend who has been recently Terminated there he had 20+
years Service and was Charged with Work Place Violence! I read the Trial
Transcipts and it was Bull Shit! The Accuser said he wanted the Charges
Dropped to the Amtrak Police and to Management. He stated he was
Stressed and Over Reacted but in the long run my friend received the
Shit End of the Stick. There were many contridictions in the Accusers
statements written and at Trial! I told him to Sue the Shit out of
Amtrak for Wrongful Termination, Slander, Harassment and
Discrimination! Fuck a Zero Tolerence Policy they are a waste as the
paper it's printed on! I haven't seen 1 Credible Statement in it!
This is typical CSX Bull Shit that we deal with! I say FUCK CSX
Managers as well as the Losers from here went to Amtrak or any other

This should be a wake up call since we can end up with a Terminated
Amtrak Flunkie who's running a Terminal or Division and end up in the
same shit as my Friend!

Sounds like you have an alcoholic trainmaster in Danville WV.  In new
orleans they just had a trainmaster fail a breath test.  He had just
got out of rehab for drinking on the job and Angie Averitte was in NOLA
for a couple of days and tipped him off that the nurse was there to test
him.  He just did not come into work.  The next day they were back and
he showed up and the idiot failed the test.  This trainmaster, Joe
Rider also fired more people than anybody there....and he was caught
drinking on the job.  Think about that for a minute.  That whole
terminals officals are the biggest bunch of drunks on the railroad. 
Angie was over saftery for the Atl Division and could not even drive to
work because she had so many DUI's.
