    • The red signals on time are usually in places where you are getting close to another train in front of you at a station, approaching a home signal and therefore a switch that may not be set for you, or a curve that the train cannot pass too fast.  Their main objective is safety over speed, but even then as mentioned before, there are timers that are not calibrated properly. They are design to clear as the train is about to pass the signal, and while this is fine for two shot timers (yellow with lunar white/S/D), the one shot timers (red with lunar white/speed limit) with the stop arm up becomes a precarious thing to do as it may cause the train to go BIE, so people usually let it clear ahead of them.
    • Although I apologize for 'bumping' this thread/topic, I have good news for those folks who have a low list number and for those who need to obtain their Commercial Learner's Permits (CLP) as well. As of today, Monday, July 6th, 2020, most of the DMV locations within the tri-state area have re-opened for in person transactions by appointment only. Therefore, since appointments at the DMV are going to be "hotcakes" in the foreseeable future, and if your list number is below 500, it would be a good idea to use "forward planning" to start preparing yourself to get the Commercial Learners Permit (CLP) sometime in the immediate future depending on appointment availability. To make an appointment to take the multiple-choice exams, click here. To practice some of the questions before going to the DMV, click here. Remember, the exams that you need to take and pass, at minimum are General Knowledge, Air Brake and Passenger Endorsement. Good luck!! Stay safe and healthy!!
    • My apologies for 'bumping' this thread/topic, however I do have good news to share for those who do not yet have their Commercial Learners Permit (CLP). Although there has been no recent movement on this particular list, most of the DMV locations within the tri-state are now open by appointment only. Before this pandemic and/or "nightmare" began, for the purposes of pre-employment and the first drug test, the agency's Human Resources Office was up to the 2300's. Therefore, since they have about 500 names to go before they move on to the next list, and since appointments at the DMV are going to be "hotcakes" in the foreseeable future, in my opinion, it would be a good idea to use "forward planning" to start preparing yourself to get the Commercial Learners Permit (CLP) sometime in the immediate future depending on appointment availability.
