  1. The cabs inside the trains are horrible too, I’ve ruined some of my shirts and coat from placing my arm on the windows.
  2. The train doesn’t have to be cleaned out at Bowling Green. It’s no different than the current setup at BB on the and provided the crew made proper announcements most people will be off the train at Fulton Street.
  3. Man those AM jobs that drop out at Burnside are the ish, those are usually the heavy hitter penalty jobs and the WAA is beautiful lol. Am crews atleast when I worked one of those jobs start up at Woodlawn make a trip down to Utica and on our way back we drop out at Burnside. Midnight crew go from WDL-NLTS and on their last half (2nd trip) from Utica they drop out at Burnside.
  4. More than likely you're going to the B division. Currently there's a shortage of conductors in the B, so much so that they've been recruiting conductors who don't have picked jobs in the A division to come over.
  5. C/R. I start posting on Monday & thanks.
  6. Thanks bro. I volunteered to come over as XX so we'll see, but I'm hoping they keep me AM's like I was in the A. Gotta little "seniority" under my belt so I hope they'll be nice lol. Haha thanks for your kind words, Trainmaster. Yes times have definitely changed, now the B div is the one with all of the dinosaur equipment. Also It definitely is like a big family in the A I've been down here for almost a year and a half now and I've built bonds with some of the crews and supervisors that are stronger than the bond I have with some of my blood relatives. I have to do over three decades until I can retire due to my age so I just want to learn as much as possible and move up. Hoping to retire as a schoolcar TSS. Oh yeah and I'm not even surprised about that story about that Supt making people walk his dogs. Nothing surprises me down here anymore lmao,
  7. Lol that's what I'm worried about, I heard stories about how they get down in the B div lmao it's like family in the A. Then to add icing to the cake when the TSS's were explaining drum switches on the 32's and BCO's my head started spinning. Hopefully stuff will start to kick in once we go into the field.
  8. Start my "A" to "B" transfer tomorrow, I'm a nervous wreck lol.
  9. @TM5 my first time hearing this also. I have no clue why that site refers to it as that however we officially don't refer to the A division as the northern division. We do have two 'districts' within the A div East side GC and West side but that's mainly for job picking purposes. The B div does have a "North" district though. Drifting back to topic, just as I was thinking about drifting over to the B div to work the & lines they want to put that junk back on those lines . Grrr
  10. From our “operational” standpoint it really isn’t much different. A train is a train and an MDC is an MDC at the end of the day.The reporting locations and the fact that I might have to give up my tour/rdo’s is swaying my decision tho... Every School car TSS I spoke with told me the 1 & 6 will make you a real conductor. Them lines almost made me quit lol real talk. Not tryna get too off topic here. I think it may be safe to say that the next few classes that get hired will get forced into the B div though so keep that in mind to you hopefuls who are close to being called.
  11. This is the second notice they’re putting out too. They’re probably going to start drafting ppl from the bottom of the xx list if they don’t get enough volunteers.
  12. I've been AM's with Sun/Sat for a year and some change now and I get decent jobs for the most part, don't want to risk going over there and having my tour/rdo's changed. I called earlier and was told I keep my "seniority" but being XX we're subject to have our tour/rdo's changed on a weekly basis. I've heard that they've been ABD'ing intervals over there due to the lack of personnel. It's crazy
  13. It’s like being in a dungeon. It’s a dark Small cramped room with no cell service, and the AM dispatcher is a piece of work... Sidenote: B division is looking for XX conductors from the A to transfer over. I’m really strongly considering it, but the A div crew office has been treating me amazing.
