The Schoolcar Experience

Recommended Posts

Wow! 2 overruns by the same class. What happened ? Are they kicked out of school car ?

Actually only one of the situations mentioned happened via one class.

Did some switching at 205 and 168 today, along with some familiarization along the Concourse and Upper Manhattan.

 

Taking a joyride tomorrow, starting at Jamaica Yard. Probably a 46 down to Kings Hwy via the (F).

 

Got our posting papers. Midnights next week, then AMs the week after.

The overrun at TSQ was done by a class they let the regular T/O sit and took over. I guess they hijacked a train because 240 wouldn't give them one. Christopher St was by a Student T/O. The same student let the controller go 2 weeks ago.

That T/O almost didn't let them take his train, but he and TSS Tom have known each other a while

Ok now who overran TSQ by 2 door panels on the #1 line N/B ? Someone else overran Christopher St S /B.

 

 

Northbound TSQ? Can't say I'm surprised, but shaking my head since it's posted 16MPH entering....

I spent most of my EMS career on nightshift. I'm naturally nocturnal. This week, I've been dragging since we did night ops last week and are back on A.M.s this week. 

 

Joyride from 71 Av to Euclid and back on the R46. Not my best, not my worst. 

 

Coney tomorrow for another joyride with a 'junkbox'. (Name the Motor Instructor).

A Div guys had our final today. It was a much harder test than our midterm. You really need to know your rules, they try to trip you up quite a bit on this one. Thankfully everyone passed. Road practical next week. We found out today the school car director is not giving it, going to be another super.

The Christopher St thing is not as dramatic as it seems. From what I understand re-instruction is on deck. As per work force development policy.
