  1. Oh most def I studied today after taking a small break yesterday. Job isn’t mine yet
  2. We all finished the final yard practical and sig exam this week. On to road posting. @Schecter all ima tell u bro is that train operator training isn’t overtly easy but it’s nowhere near beast mode difficult in terms of subject matter. It’s intense because of the amount of things you gotta learn in a short time but doable.
  3. Did not know this I’ll try thx! Also we got our posting papers this week too so we’re almost done with schoolcar’s hardest part.
  4. For the practical practice my tss has us just apply one handbrake in the first cab before securing and descending but if you’re doing this for real I think one should suffice but if you want to apply 2 sure.
  5. In theory I guess you could use it for that but only in a self defense manner.
  6. Yeah true handbrakes are a major part of you’re doing it on smee. I was never told to mention ppe though.
  7. You do mention the hissing air but obviously you can’t just do nothing about it after noticing it. Have to reset the ebv, check if your train recharged, question the passengers as to who pulled the cord, tell RCC And go back to your position , check indication, and tell the passengers and the conductor the investigation is done. And a few more things
  8. ITs much easier than you think. There is certain verbiage you must say during the Brake pipe rupture sim but it’s easy to remember cause if your tss is serious they’ll drill it into your head repeatedly.
  9. Yes. You close the angles in the middle after having secured the train and deactivated HVAC. Then you reopen them after a min. If the train goes BIE (at this point it should be partially charged) the front section is good and the back is bad.
  10. Damn. Passed my midterm and pre signal test with 100s but I’m not staying complacent. Still kinda nervous about the fact that you have much less leeway on the mult choice section of the signal test tho
  11. Yes, Im finding it nowhere near as complex as they made it sound. But people are different.
  12. I take it you heard about the Friday incident at Stilwell too?
  13. Thx! Sounds fun. For me gotta worry about that second practical as well though.
  14. You were right. Just passed the practical a few hrs ago with the rest of my class. It was pretty easy actually
