Train Operator Exam # 8098

Recommended Posts

Cut the s*** out. The rest of us don't want to read an internet pissing contest.

 

Back on topic.

 

Blowing off a little steam it happens..

Hey might as well let em see to how it can be down here at times.

The key is....

Knowing WHEN to STOP.

Sometimes stuff gets outta hand and G2's are written. Which I have said here a few times.

 

Blowing off steam does happen, but I told him what I had to tell him a few posts ago, YESTERDAY now I see another one directed at me INCLUDING threats now. I don't do those. This is a public forum. But hey... I'm just starting my yard posting. By the time he gets down here, God willing I'll be pounding the road. Maybe he and will run into each other.......... Nuff said!!!

Since it don't concern non RTO folks anyway..

????@get that badge under my name. Will do, and phew!! I'm glad there won't be any of those "crew room lawyers" there. Cause I've heard of them, and I believe I have seen one or two already. And in my mind I'm like " oh god! These are those lawyers people are warning me about"

I don't know exactly what happened here. But I do know that @trainman has a track record of trying to police this forum like he owns it. Then he likes to hide when things get thick. @trainman likes to ask off topic questions when it suits him but if we talk about off topic subjects on here he starts crying like a little girl. When I say off topic I'm referring to getting called for dt or med or final processing.

Question for the current T/O's. I've noticed over the past few classes called, that A-div seems to be where most guys being called are heading into. Is that because of more openings on the A div, current T/O's going from A to B div or are they trying to level the fields since a lot of guys want the B div. Also if you get A div, do you have to go back to school to get B div considering the difference in equipment used.

Wassup @Westendman I guess it had to do with budgetary concerns. Like when I started on 4-28-14 there were 42 T/O' and 60 C/R's only 12 slots for B division T/O's and the rest of us 30 T/O's got sent to the A. And pretty much all the C/R's got whatever they chose. I was a lil peeved, so were my other classmates, because we live in B division territory. But you know what... I got over it and in happy. I'm a buff so it really doesn't even matter at the end if the day. Oh and the last 2 classes I believe they all went the A also. Good luck, I can tell by your name you live in Brooklyn like myself.

We have a T/O shortage in A div do to high turn over for various reasons.

If are stuck in a Div you don't like just keep writing a request to switch. When you have enough senority to pick a job in the other division pick it and then yes school car and post over again exept your just learning about the div and equipment.

More retirements and promotions of T/O's in A Div at the moment, plus a few losing their handles so they have a shortage.

 

The movement dictates who goes where for new hires.

 

Whichever division you are qualified in, you must go back to schoolcar to qualify for the other division. There are separate classes for:

-A Division T/O transferring to the B Division

-B Division T/O transferring to the A Division

-A or B Division employee transferring to Work Trains (this will include A to B, or B to A transfer class also if it has not been completed as work train T/O must be qualified in both divisions. It also includes miscellaneous qualification).

-OPTO Qualification (GC Shuttle, Midnight #5 shuttle, late night "A" Lefferts shuttle, Franklin Ave. Shuttle, Rockaway Park Shuttle, weekend "G", weekend "M").

-CBTC Qualification ("L" line)

 

When you are extra extra as a new employee, the crew office may send you (at their discretion) for OPTO or CBTC Qualification. If you are picked extra list and have at least 2 years on the job, the crew office may send you (at their discretion) for work train qualification, especially if you are already A/B Qualified.

 

Otherwise, you will have to pick a job when you need the additional training to be eligible for it. IE if you want to be CBTC Qualified, pick a job on the "L".

@Brownhornet78 thanks . Nah man, I grew up & lived along the West End until about 10 years ago, then moved to L.I. Loved seeing those R40 slants when it was the B line, the M line when it ran. So yeah like most, I have that sentimental attachment to the B div. But I'll take whatever comes my way.

@PelhamBayDave.... As for me, I'm good. I grew on the 2 and 5 in Brooklyn. Church avenue. So it's a lil nostalgic being able to do a Dyre- Flat run or white plains to flat run. I can't wait to do road ops., and road post. Hey whenever that time comes when I'm able to pick. Then I'll decide to make a move. So far I like the people I meet during my yard posting. I know I won't like everyone, and vice versa. But hey..... I'm loving it!!!
