  1. what's your average run time on the A on midnights? I've have some nights on the 2 thats taken me just about 2 hours to get down to Flatbush then right back out. It's not my favorite but the night does go by quick. With little flagging on a good night it's about 1:45 Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk
  2. a few of you need to call school car and tell them you are in your 5th week and still haven't gotten your signal guide. There is no reason for that. It's just a matter of making the copies and have your TSS go pick them up or maybe even someone from your class going to get them. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk
  3. for the write in they want the whole definition of the signal. "Green over green is a fixed interlocking signal. It means proceeded on the main route expect the next signal to be clear." Do not put any more info than you need to! You can put one wrong word and then the whole thing is wrong. As far as rsec you have to put the whole thing down on paper. You need to know the whole definition and what your looking for in that situation. If you don't put it they are going to ask you for it. Also I don't believe that's on the signal test, it's on the midterm. At least it was when I took it a year ago. Also I know the signal test is very stressful but try not to lose sleep over it. The test is very easy if you know your signals. There are no trick questions, it's just your basic signals. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk
  4. Can anyone in the new class that just started this week let us know if you will be doing 3 months in the yard. Rumor has it this part of the program will be ending soon. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk
  5. when you come out of school car you probably will be jumping around for a while with regards to your tour and rdo. It gets easier as you move up the extra list. Once you get near the top of the list your tour and rdo will most likely stay the same. Also if you are a midnight person and that's what you prefer let the crew office know once you come out. Most people don't like the midnights so when you tell them that's what you want they will usually keep you on that tour and your rdos will probably stay the same for the pick. Since this pick started in June my tour and rdos haven't changed. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk
  6. oh common now... midnights are the best. I been XX on the midnights now for about 5 months. TSS's aint around or are few and far between, no rush hour crowds no one knocking on my window and no trains in front of me all greens. And when you get used to seeing all greens those yellows stick out at you like a sore thumb. But thats usually only when you get a work train in front of you. And remember no one over runs a station on the midnights and the radio is always quiet. I lock my cab door and i enjoy the peacefulness and just operate, nothing like it.

  7. go to your local social security office and get a printout of your work history. That will give you all your jobs going back to whenever you want. They charge you for the printout but it's worth it. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk
  8. well I believe Poughkeepsie is in that induction class so I would trust her. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4
  9. I agree. Instead of getting another job I just work one of my days off. Besides it's pretty hard to keep another job. Lately I been getting home going to sleep wake up eat and go back to work. I love it! Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4
  10. correct. A new class starts the last Monday of every month. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4 Beta
  11. yea I think the crew office just doesn't like me. I called every week for 2 months trying to get an rdo and I get nothing. Finally got one 2 weeks ago and last week. Seems like over the past few weeks jobs are starting to open up more. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4 Beta
  12. that's how it is for conductors in the A. Yesterday they had to abd 2 rush hour trips out of Van Cortland because they had no conductors. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4 Beta
  13. RTOMan, how bad is the shortage of t/o's in the B? I just put in my transfer to the pick section. I'm hoping to get over there next pick. This 2 hour commute is killing me. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4 Beta
  14. ditto on that. I know you're just trying to put some people's mind at ease but that is not something that should be on a public forum. Remember supervision is on this forum and they do read it. I know this for a fact. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4 Beta
  15. hahaha good luck with that! I had a christening to go to and I was the Godfather. When I asked the head of school car for the day off her exact respond was "oh well sorry you're not going to make it" this was the Sunday before Thanksgiving that we weren't even supposed to work. But they decided to give us off that Friday instead so we had to work Sunday. Remember they really could care less about you. You're just a number. Sent from my Nexus 4 using Tapatalk 4 Beta
