Asleep At The Wheel

Casey Jones you'd better,
watch your speed...

    "The railroad is a 24 hour a day, 7 day a week operation", many of us have been told, when requesting some extra 'rest' between jobs. Unfortunately, the people that make the railroad move, like all other people, do not operate "24 hours a day, 7 days a week".

    Anyone who's worked around the clock has either seen, or experienced first-hand, the inevitable effects of sleep deprivation. Maybe it was you, maybe it was the jitney driver, maybe it was....

    The real fun is when someone tries to explain to the crew-caller that they are too tired to go to work.

Eugene doesn't care about intermodal.   He's ran off plenty of
buisness.    He closed Caskey Yard and put a stop to ID runs.   He
doesn't give two shits about 10 years down the road only the now.  He
knows he won't be here anyway.

Due to the new bulletin.    Brothers and sisters don't ever use your
phone for any sort of company business.  After taking  a call for work
don't answer or place a call due to anything CSX related.   Don't
call ptc,to,mechanical or any other of their bullshit.  Dispatcher
tells you to call TM use only a company provided phone..

As much as we wait on a ride after going dead.  No naps no phone no
unapproved reading material CSX knows this is not fucking possible.  

Fuck CSX and fuck Eugene

                                NO FUCKING.    FAVORS

Is it just me or is anyone else just plain sick and tired of these new
crew callers who don't understand a damn thing about how the railroad
has worked for the last 30 years. Why in the hell is the company not
putting them through some serious agreement training or just some plain
old simple railroad 101!!!!   I swear to god if one more crew caller
wakes me up running a roster just to get smart mouthed with me because
START FILING HARASSMENT SUITS!  This god for saken company has made a
damn mess out of everything when they extended the terminal limits. It
used to be 10 miles shorter going both directions(east and west) then
they started extending it out after they were bombarded with 100's of
claims for road crews doing yard work in yard limits. Then csx kept
saying avon didn't have yard limits only terminal limits. Well that
may have been a technicality because avon didn't have YL signs posted
and in the timetables but the yard crews had switching limits set by
the FRA on how far they could go out with cars with hazmats without a
CT168. They weren't supposed to go past the area where the IC(terminal
dispatcher) area of responsibility ended and the IB( road dispatcher)
area began. So they came up with this extended limit crap to try to get
rid of claims and let the yard crews go out farther to do the work. Its
bullshit because there still is a limit the FRA will allow any hazmat
to travel on main line without a CT168. That would be the end of
switching limits! All these new crew callers are being told that
everyone who works out of Avon is supposed to be qualified to work in
the ENTIRE TERMINAL LIMITS! Who is telling them this shit. I have been
on a pool over 20 years that has advertised miles and advertised
starting and ending points. I DO NOT HAVE TO GO 1 damn mile the
opposite direction of my advertised job limits let alone 10 damn miles.
This is called out of route and out of my advertised limits.  I haven't
worked their entire so called terminal limits and don't ever intend to.
They extended this shit years after I was hired and trained. I got the
seniority to stay where the hell I am and work the job as it is
advertised. I tell these morons over and over that I did not have to be
qualified to work both directions and I don't have any reason to go
outside of my advertised limits. Quit calling me for this terminal
limit bullshit and call me for the job I have been on over 20 years. 
I even had one threaten to put me down for refuse to work if I didn't
go do their stupid dog catching shit of my own damn train outside of my
advertised limits. Couldn't bring it down to me to hand off where my
advertised limits start. Said it was in the terminal so I had to go get
it. Told them do what you go to do but if you want me to go it you find
me a damn pilot because Im not qualified, never have been and if I have
to I'll call an FRA man to go with me. See what he has to say. I hear
guys saying every day they are being threatened with insubordination
charges if they don't go get on trains miles out of their limits they
weren't qualified on. How come there aren't more fra guys around the
yard. Isn't anyone calling them? What the hell is going to happen if
this rumor comes true that HH is going to make everyone qualified on
everything and be one big extra board. Does this idiot not know how
many people were never qualified on everything. Does he know how many
pilots are going to be needed.  I heard he thinks just one trip is
enough for anyone. I hope to god the FRA has their hands in this cause
if they don't I can bet you bottom dollar that us Grand Dads are going
to be up his arss like stink in 
his horse barn. Its bad enough now with these crew callers not knowing
how things work but if he starts this crap our lives will be hell. They
wont know who's qualified and who isn't. They will be calling all of
us all night trying to find a warm body and then threatening all of us.
YEAH and why the hell do they keep getting away with threatening us and
talking to us like dog crap. If my kids talked to me the way they do I
would smack their mouths! JEEEZZZZ this crap is getting deep!

The old man came home yesterday after a tiresome day in Washington.   It
won't be long before he flips his lid permanently.  He's had his
feedbag of pills strapped on all day.   Has smoked more crack than
Harlem and has been beating the donkey 8 to 10x a day.   I'm a little
concerned for him.   I'll keep you guys posted.

8:02 AM EDT, 10/11/2017m(MT Newswire)--CSX service disruptions will be
addressed at a Wednesday "listening session" before the U.S. Surface
Transportation Board in Washington D.C. according to a report filed by
Dow DuPonts Dow chemical unit and privately held agricultural
manufacturer Cargill (DOW) are expected to speak before the top U.S.
rail regulators about their experiences with the CSX rail network. The
network has been hurt by service problems since the summer.
CSX will be given the chance to defend its new operating strategy, the
report said. 

Will be real interesting to see what HH has as an excuse for disrupting
one of the largest well known manufacturing companies in the country!
