    Dude, where in the world would you ever see that conflicting situation? Been on the road all over and I have never witnessed that scenario. Is this what they are telling folks in school car now? That conflicting fixed signals will be right next to each other? If so, we’re doomed🤦‍♂️😂

    👋 I am a train operator, I’m pretty well versed in who’s in charge of what. That being said, that bulletin wasn’t directed at RTO. If you read it, it explains essential positions are exempt. RTO IS ESSENTIAL 🤦‍♂️. My point, 🤷‍♂️. Just saying there’s no freeze for RTO. There will be classes and you will be called. Relax, it’s all coming around. I’m only on here to watch for my wife’s cousin being called and possibly give some insight. I’m just gonna watch from this point on. Y’all seem to have it under control 🤦‍♂️. Good luck😉

    Don’t believe it. Or do what you want. Ms Vargas ain’t school car. She does what she’s told. Like I said, I spoke with a superintendent in school car. But again, what do I know.

    We have a ton of people retiring this year. The new contract is making folks wonder what they might lose. So people will be out before May in droves. Don’t worry, they need folks badly. You’ll get here. Good luck!

    More than likely it was the amount of school car TSS’s available and timing. That’s probably why they made two classes in January. The April thing is up in the air from what I was told, but it looks like they are skipping it. But hey, what do I know😉😂🤷‍♂️

    It’s not a rumor. I was at PS248 Thursday and Friday and that’s from a superintendent 🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️.

    Spoke with someone credible at School Car yesterday and they are skipping Feb, having a class in March, skipping April and having a class in May. April thing he wasn’t 100% on, but that’s the word on the street so far. Good luck folks.

    Just read a notice of an immediate hiring freeze. Tried to copy and post, but I can’t figure out how. All nonessential OC and Promotional hiring is here by frozen until further notice. “Represented operational positions that are essential to the provision of safe and reliable transportation services to our customers are excluded from this hiring freeze....”

    That’s not how School car is. You aren’t behind a lever all day. You aren’t even behind a lever😂. But regardless, you’ll have about an hour for lunch. Technically they only have to give you 30mins. Usually it’s closer to an hour. Not always though.

    Brother, they won’t hold on that long. Get ready for a Dec class with that info. At the latest Jan. It definitely won’t be May.

    Your list number is 156*? They are that high into the list? I thought I was reading 116*. My wife’s cousin is waiting and he’s around the same.

    Rookies can’t choose to be in the yard, that’s a super senior job, or medical restriction gets you there. XL couldland you a yard job sometimes, XX could as well, but your more inclined to the road so you can learn more. You post yards and then become YX(not sure if they are using this term anymore), but basically you are learning the yard with, preferably seasoned train operator. Doesn’t always happen though. I’ve seen guys still on probation that have gotten a yard job for the day and they are working with YX. It’s mind numbing to be honest. After 3 months( when I was YX 5 years ago, we were the second class to be YX), you go back to school car and finish with that. Then you road post. After all is said and done and all finals and practicals are passed, you are thrown to the wolves. It’s such an awesome feeling😉😂😂😂
