Hello all. As a retired railroad engineman, this is an unsettling decision by the industry's prime regulating agency. The loss of positions for operating craft employees to accomplish cost savings for the carriers may soon I fear, result in danger, injury, and peril for rail employees and the public. The FRA seems to be abdicating it's responsibility to insure the safety of anyone on or near railroad property to the financial benefit of the corporations. Here's a link to the Railway Age article, for your consideration. http://www.railwayage.com/breaking-news/fra-refuses-to-prohibit-one-person-train-crews.html I think I'm pleased not to be working on the rails any more. :tb-sad: Bob C.
