Pinenuts: CSX paid for hooker's train trip to Washington from NYC. That
said was it reported to NYS Ethics committee? It has to be reported by
#9 if it is over $75 or it is a problem for a politician. Maybe Union
Pacific lent the money to #9 thru Mcain. You go figure.

The railroad has a long history of politically motivated scandals. I've
heard tony ingram was the second gunman on the grassy knoll and rumor
has it that the FBI is conducting a covert investigation into an
increasingly popular theory that mike ward killed Hoffa. Maybe nelson

I'm thinking that with the rising gas prices, we should cut wages to
50%, except for the pre-85 workers who are protected, of course to
cover everything to keep the share holders happy. if we all do our
part, I'm sure we can help the share holders keep their money and make
lots more. and any employee hired after 2005 should maintain their
trainee salary with no OT, but there will be discipline matters with
workers with less than satisfactory work records. what does everyone
think?

Dave, it looks you have uncovered the best kept secret of the
century.... because you have the scoop over MSNBC, CBS, NBC, CNN,
HEADLINE NEWS, ABC ... None of these news giants broke the news that 
CSX exposed him, nor was there a million dollar payoff... Now don't
tell  me Pinenuts told you because WE all know how much Pinenuts tells
the the truth....

Hey, I heard now that Larry Craig has blamed a special agent from the
UP for setting him up in a men's bathroom.  Any truth to that one

Okay I expect to see you on Larry King on how this happened...can't

Ummmm......how did CSX offer a governors job to anyone?  I thought
voters voted to elect a governor?  Where have I been?

CSX exposed him??  Sounds to me like he exposed himself more than he
should.  How is it CSX caused a grown man to become involved in some
sort of prostitution ring, or whatever it's called?  I kind of think
Spitzer was pretty dumb to allow himself to get sucked up into this. 
Did CSX hold a gun to his crotch...I mean head?

I have a hard time liking CSX for other reasons, safety being only one
of them, but how can reasonable people blame CSX for Spitzer's
inability to keep his pants zipped?

Pay Back!!!!!

Spitzer goes after CSX over killing an elderly couple at a crossing in
Henrietta NY.

CSX offers Spitzer the NY Governors spot, in exchange for $1 million
and a full release. Spitzer BITES off on it.

CSX comes back and has him exposed for a running a prostitution ring.

Where has the free market system gone to in our country? I mean--How
can a guy make a few bucks under the table any more?

Pay back "SUCKS" doesn't it Elliot?

CSXT Praises BLET Contract Ratification 
Released: Apr 20, 2007

Jacksonville, Fla. - April 20, 2007 - CSX Transportation (CSXT) today
praised the new performance bonus-based labor agreement with the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET), saying it
would contribute to the continued success of CSXT and its employees.

"We are very pleased that the CSXT engineers opted for an agreement
that allows them to participate in and benefit from CSXT's financial
success," said Tony Ingram, executive vice president and chief
operating officer.

"I congratulate the negotiating teams for their success in creating an
agreement that recognizes the significant contribution of our
engineers," Ingram said. "Changes in scheduling will provide more
predictable work schedules, improving the safety of our employees and
service to our customers."

The BLET announced this week that its members have ratified the
agreement, which covers 5,200 CSXT locomotive engineers. The employees
receive a 3 percent pay increase and $2,500 salary bonus. In lieu of
future pay increases, the employees are eligible for performance
bonuses of 6 percent, 8 percent and 10 percent respectively, based on
their earnings in 2007, 2008 and 2009, if the company meets its
financial and strategic goals in those years.

CSX Transportation Inc. is a principal operating company of CSX
Corporation. CSX Corporation, based in Jacksonville, Fla., is one of
the leading transportation companies, providing rail, intermodal and
rail-to-truck transload services. The company's transportation network
spans 21,000 miles with service to 23 eastern states and the District of

What clear vision Slackie? Looks like a scene for a dungeons and
dragons horror movie with bridges built in front of signals, brush,
equipment sheds, and the real thriller is removing the gates from two
crossings and making one super wide crossing. And the 40% slope
between
tracks with ice attached is like classic huh?

Pinetard...

think you need to be blaming the HIGHWAY/CIVIL engineers for the road
design there chippy... odds are the tracks where there long befor the
road was "engineered" into that location... from the pics looks to me
like the driver had plenty of line of sight to see an oncoming train..
also the incline slope isnt even close to 40 degrees...that is 20
degrees if even that.. get out your protractor there buddy... and the
last time i checked..if there was ice buildup on the roads..its the
road department to salt and treat the roads..not the railroads.. the
road department that built and designed this "unsafe" location there
pal.. not the railroads you dip shit.. also the key pics that are
missing are the ones that show the side view from the drivers
prospective yet they are missing? wonder why? oh yea i know.. becouse
it would show that either A..the driver had a better line of shight
that you claim they had..or B... would show that it was piss poor road
design and you cant blame that on the railroads... 

that is all..........

Clear as a bell Pinenuts, Don't know what you are looking at..SHE WENT
AROUND THE GATES, THAT IS AGAINST THE LAW..PERIOD!!!!

Southwest Airlines to be fined 10.2 million dollars for flying 117
unsafe planes...

Now Pinenuts if you what to do something useful look into this problem,
something that could really saves some lives..

Remember Pinenuts, every crossing accident can be prevented, by using
common sense and personal responsibility....

Now get back to work at the pencil factory, and stop sniffing the
graphite..

Safety tip:  slow down while driving in fog
