I wonder if anyone else called before has been considered for the January 28 class? Maybe they are just starting to fill it. If so I may have a chance to get in there but if not, whatever class is next is my turn! Can't wait.

I will ask about any further classes on Monday. I know I will be placed on medical hold anyway due to diabetes and sleep apnea with CPAP usage...so I may not make it into Jan 28th...earliest I can clear hold is Jan 9th after follow up sleep Dr. appointment that I have scheduled already.

In the mid 800s for meds, huh? A s/a told me that a tss told him there will be a March class. Could i be a lock for that with an 111x list number, if what he says is true?

I’m list number 109x. Mathematically speaking, we’ll be in there around April, latesttttt May, considering DQs and medical holds.

I feel march is more likely, though.

I hope you’re right. March sounds a lot better lol. But doing the math; 70 to a class, it’s showing around April for list in the late 1000s. But you never know, March for sure isn’t out the question.

Congrats man. I'm straight terrified. Not sure I can cite all the signals verbatim. Cutting and adding seems complicated. Granted I just started on the 17th. But I can't seem to retain alot of it...

Don't give up! I've heard that the info is overwhelming at first, but it all clicks together when you least expect it.

Nah gotta think positive, the signals will come with time! Cutting and adding also you will get better doing it with practice! Cutting you’re just splitting cars, adding your combining them.

I know that but the procedure is nuts step by step and my yard practical 2 months away. I wish there was an outside source or a video or something. Cause having to wait for everyone to do a cut and add I'm not gonna get much practice

It’s overwhelming for sure man. Make sure you’re communicating with your class on a daily/nightly basis. That mutual support goes a long way.

Every night when I get home, I type out EVERYTHING we learned for that day as far as procedures and protocol without a book to test myself and my classmates will correct me where I’m wrong.

For cuts and adds, remember the importance of testing your pilot valves before engaging/disengaging your handbrakes. Write down a check list of what you need to inspect before each step.

Also; Who are your TSS’?

My class is loving it. We each took a turn operating between several stations on the E line yesterday. It was exhilarating, but I had a death grip on the brake handle because of all the grade time and station time signs I saw.

Overall, it’s been amazing and very informative.

Reading this makes me feel super impatient. But glad you're enjoying it!

Had my medical today, and placed on medical hold (as expected). Nothing disqualifying, just need my Docs to fill out the paperwork later this week. I did ask about further classes after 1/28 and was told nothing ‘officially’ scheduled as of yet...still keeping my fingers crossed I’ll make it back to get in for the end of the month.

Ah man...that sucks dude. Our TSS’ told us that class cohesion and communication really helps.

If you have to, try to communicate along with the two promotionals you have. If the other ones want to go solo, that’s on them, but since it’s your job, do whatever you can to get yourself on the ball.

3 brains working together are better than 1, especially if all 3 have a common goal.

Did they tell you if the Jan 28th class is full?

Yeah dude, your time will come. I’m fortunate enough to have a class full of supportive people who are a blast to learn with. The days fly by because we’re hungry for the knowledge. Before I know it, it’s 15:00 and it’s time to go home, and we’re still trying to squeeze some knowledge out of our TSS’.

That sucks. 

I’m  in Ta71 and we make sure we all pass. It’s like family. 

We did break test and cuts last week and I love getting that train rolling and controlling it. 

First road day is Wednesday and can’t f**king wait to run down the line.  

Greatest job on the planet. 

Good look to all going through the process, it’s WELL WORTH IT.
