Remember wear sweatpants or gym shorts. I made the mistake of wearing jeans and had to adjust my jeans to walk over ballast and mimic climbing a locomotive. Lol.

Suggesting sweatpants @drenyce311 was the some sage advice. Just got done with phase 1 medical and passed everything, (that ladder is high as hell lol). @Steven trejo I knew you were going to get called. @Kicker and @Iwetoddit now the real work begins. I know that @LIRRrailfan is here lurking as well, hopefully you got the call as well. Congrats to all of you guys, just making this far is a great achievement in itself....

Can anyone tell me how long after phase 1 phase two comes because I am supposed to be going on vacation in December 

So your starting the 18th. 6 weeks of class time. 7th Saturday is test. Probably 2-3 weeks after that. Nov 2nd is your test. Probably 2-3 weeks after that you’ll start phase 2. So yea. Go ahead and cancel that vacation. There’s no taking Days  off in phase 2. And 100% attendance is needed. Phase 2 you have weekends off. So you can forget about having weekends off once you qualify and get used to going on vacation in January. Just a heads up.

That’s quite the turnaround.  But I imagine it also depends on filling the class?  I thought we would wait a bit as well after phase 1.

Congratulations on Phase 1.  The last three phase two classes have been the sixth Wednesday after the phase 1 test, so if the pattern holds your phase 1 test will be November 2 with phase 2 beginning December 11.  Good luck in phase 1, you control your own destiny now.

It’s usually between 12-14 and 12 spots for phase 2. So now all of you are competing for a spot. Remember 80 is passing.

@drenyce311 Is it only the final that is graded or is it an average score of all quizzes as well?

How long is this physical?  Just trying to gauge the time to get to work afterwards. 

Did my medical today, it takes no more than 35 min. Free parking in the back of the building btw.
