Training and Schoolcar...

Recommended Posts

Please remember, I don't come over as a C/R, or off the street. I come over as a Bronx B/O (MaBSTOA). You all call the 2 line the beast, and speak of hot trains, etc... It's no different than the DOB. You all have steel wheels, I come from rubber ones. Most rules are exacly the same. I've had hot buses, and horrible lines. Try working the Bx41, Bx36, Bx9, M100, Bx19, or the Bx3 during the rush hour. You all will know what "the beast is". They could put me on that 2 line, 5 days a week. From the divison I am coming from, it wouldn't make me flinch......I've dealt with far worse routes, that run for 1hr 17 minutes each way, and you end up later than that. Don't forget a B/O is the C/R, T/O, S/A, and Collecting Agent, all in one.....:P:P:p......We had people watching us on the road (hiding sometimes)......Last thing, I don't worry about what time I will get home, as I don't plan my home life with what time I suppose to clear from work. I plan my home life around my RDOs. So nice try guys.... Hopefully, if I pass everything, have little to no issues with RTO, and become a TSS years down the road, I'll make sure if you two are in your current titles, that I carry four or more pens, since I will run out of ink, writing the list of violations up on you two. I'll make sure I'll write up others rarely, so when i write you two up, it sticks :):P:P:p:p..........

 

 

Hehe well good luck I remember in my CR class we had a BO coming over and a TSS laid it into her after being on the road posting she went back as a BO.

 

Trust me I know alot about them buses I have a uncle thats been a BO for Mabstoa out of 126th street for over 26 years.

 

I will doubt you can find anything wrong that I do I am by the book always have been. You better watch yourself when your my T/O I am sure they told you in schoolcar that you don't run the train the C/R runs it. I have already pulled the cord on 1 bad T/O and I have no fear of pulling it again lol.:(

We go to fire school car Monday. 1500hrs report......

 

To all: We got our tools, (except radios, and masks)..... A Div people got love, as B Div persons got old heavy used brake handles. A Div's came new, still sealed in the package.......

Yeah....Go rub it in!!! I was one of the people that got a brake handle that looked like Darius McCollum used it when he stole trains! I hope it isn't a curse..:eek: Seriously,it's not a big deal but it would have been cool if it was fresh out the bizzzox!

She took a pay cut doing that also. I wouldn't leave as a B/O to become a C/R. B/Os are behind T/Os in pay.....

 

I will doubt you can find anything wrong that I do I am by the book always have been.

 

I'll just lie. They will say he never writes up anyone, so it must be true....:P

Yes, you are in charge of that train. Pull that cord, and you will find out that the brake handle will break other things than the brakes.........028.gif

Yesterday my class was at Pitkin Yard.The experience was GREAT! We toured the facility and seen alot of NEW CARS! They are ALL going on the (A) line.The (A) line also got some of the old trains that the (J) is using.My TSS stated that it's gonna be a while before the (J) gets New trains because the (MTA) forgot to change the monitors at the conductors position so the New trains can line up with them.:eek:So....it's gonna take time.

Just to clear something up those new cars you seen are going to the (L)(J)(M)(Z) Line the monitors are in place. The (A)(C) lines are getting older trains from the (:)(J)(M)(Z) Lines. So no brand new trains on the (A)(C).

Everyone in my class want to be in the A. Two of them live in Brooklyn and wanted to pick into the B Div (you know as well as I do they could have stayed), but were talked into going to the A by their peers who work for MTA DOS/RTO (Department of Subways, in the RTO Division.....)

We actually suppose to train in the New Tech (R142 and R142A) before we get to the old SMEE equipment (that is what they call the R62 and R62A). One of our TSS doesn't like the idea, just because he feels it is better if we get the feel of a "real" train, before the "idiot monitor" trains.......The other wants us to be in the cab of one this week, just so we can get comfortable with the train. He doesn't want us to be "tight" while learning......

 

 

Tomorrow we go to Mosholu Yard (connected with Bedford Yard). We will be touring that yard, and suppose to do our track qualification.......At least I will be 15 minutes away from home for once......

I think calling R62/As SMEEs is a technical error. Only R10-R42 had SMEE brakes.

Well that's what they call it. It may be different in some aspects, but it ain't like calling the 142 or R142A SMEE. I guess what he was getting at was, having a brake handle and controller......
