  1. Public Lewdness as well. He flashed himself many times to females on the train, even when surfing in the back of it!
  2. Damn that seems rough, hell even the first time going down the road in schoolcar, stuff like this makes people really think if they wanna come down here and do this for a living, there are way too many 12-9s lately.
  3. Conductor gotta dezone & change positions so the new position can already be established for the opposite direction.
  4. https://abc7ny.com/mta-conductor-stabbed-following-dispute-on-nyc-subway-platform/5262899/ Assaults are never ending in New York City Transit, it is scary having to deal with things like this. These assaults are starting to go up heavily unfortunately.
  5. TWU Local 100 President Tony Utano is warning transit workers of a possible serial attacker targeting women on the job. “Bus Operators should keep their windows closed and Train Conductors should make sure they are wearing their goggles and immediately shut their windows if someone approaches on a platform,” Utano said. “We will do everything we can to help the police catch this disgusting individual and put him in handcuffs.” A female No. 6 train conductor was punched in the face and splashed with a liquid believed to be urine at the Brook Ave. station Friday morning at about 10:40 a.m. A female Bx1 Bus operator was splashed in the face with urine at East 138th Street and Grand Concourse, which is about 15 blocks away. You can see the news report on that incident here. Utano is asking the NYPD to increase their presence along the No. 6 line and bus routes in the area. If the attacker’s image was captured on video, Utano said TWU Local 100 will flood the area with the image along with an appeal to members of the public to call the police if they recognize the individual. “This abuse of transit workers is outrageous,” Utano said. “No other group of workers gets treated like this.” The assailant was described as a black male, about 5-feet-7 inches tall, 160 to 180 pounds, wearing a Navy sweatshirt with a hood, khaki pants and red sneakers. http://www.twulocal100.org/story/union-warns-possible-serial-attacker-targeting-transit-women?fbclid=IwAR15Sz9ordom_Plkd0zqWr0KiaZfdTRnU09p7fixpqvCekEt43c1-KGMaRY

  7. Lmao you should see how C Division is 😅
  8. Ross is a very very great person one of the best from East NY if I may say!
  9. Nice! Good luck on that exam 😉
  10. Mostly depends on where you live since you are in Brooklyn your better off picking the B Division due to most of the terminals being over there and that will make your life way easier. If that doesn't really matter to you then I'll describe the divisions to you. A Division is packed tight with close headways and short running times especially Lexington Avenue It had less equipment and most terminals are in The Bronx. Rush hour is tougher due to HEAVY crowds and many trains running and other scenarios. Also if 1 thing goes wrong your whole trip might be screwed such as a stalled train or gap fillers not coming out at 14th, so generally it pretty tough at certain times. B Division is more laid back with the times between trains and it doesn't stress hard at times like A Division does. It has more trains, lines and routes. It is more old school with towers leaving you to the responsibility of receiving your own line up. Schoolcar is longer here and the routes are longer. In the A Division you only amount to 3 trips max except the 7 line where it has 5 and B Division will have generally have 4 trips. So all in all you can choose any division you feel like if you get the choice but if I were you, I'd pick the B Division for easier travel reasons.
  11. Lots of TSS's LOVE to catch people off guard and like to be sneaky but as long your doing your job properly there should not be an issue but SOME supervisors out there are ***holes and like to start chewing on probies to show off their "authority". There are supervisors out there that are willing to help if in need and may be an asset if you ever find trouble with another TSS. That happened to me a while back where a TSS claimed that I did not sound my horn while passing caution lights when I did and was threatening to take me out of service as soon I arrived at White Plains but another TSS I knew from back when I was released to the crew office knew how that other TSS was so he said "Well we can check the time of the incident and match it with the event recorder on the train" that is when he forgot about the whole thing. Also now I think Train Service Supervisors are not required to wear their vest on the platform, I am not to sure on it but I think there was a bulletin on it I'm gonna have to check. They be playing 21 Jump Street lmao
  12. Honestly I prefer the R62 over the R62A, R62s can roll considering its age but the reason people are scared of them is because of the canned brakes. The dymanics are your best friend with them so you do not want to lose them or your station stop will be hell. Once you master the way of braking a R62 those trains become lightwork but you also have to remember that every train is different so a R62 with great braking will be a treat but get one that is bad ooh boy, you better find a way to bring that thing to a stop at the 10 first few stations or your trip will be hell. Now for the A division... yes it is strict but its not like B is any better with getting away with signal hits too. ATS monitors all of the signals and routes and will tell RCC if you hit one but they can know in B division too. Eyes are everywhere off duty TSS's and superintendents, CCTVs, ATS Computers, and sometimes and hope not your C/R so pretty much the whole system is viewed as strict. Also for memorizing punches ATS pretty much covers that but there are places still with manual punches such as Franklin Av and 138-Grand Concourse. BUT as a T/O ALWAYS NOW YOUR LINE-UPS! G.Os and other situations where towers can become active or your train might be sent down a unfamiliar part of the road can and will happen in your career and it will require you to know your routing. For example you are a 5 and you are getting ready to head into the inner loop at South Ferry, you get Bottom Yellow at 44 ball, alright your going towards the loop however lets say a track condition exist ahead and at 64 ball you get another Bottom Yellow now your going through the outer loop and you expect to be routed back normally onto Lex at 92 ball but you get a green and accept it thinking ATS just did you a favor, now you pass the homeball and your screwed cause your on 7th ave and RCC will tell you that its your fault due to improper operation since you did not know your line-ups so long story short still learn the system and try to get every chance possible to during schoolcar it will help you out on the road.
  13. Since I'm from the A I don't really know if they changed the Controllers on them because of that but what I do know is they replaced many MCs due to liquid and food damages inside of the controllers.
