This knucklehead did this even though the train restroom was only a few feet away? Imagine yourself dragging in trains and flat switching off the extra board and after 8 hours you have to clean poop from a knuckle using only bottled water and paper towels. Good luck to his fellow co-workers.

Lebsack later blamed the incident on physical and mental issues.
So now they have to let an engineer with known mental issues run a train?

We all have known and unknown mental issues on a train. Part of the job! Try sitting in a loco cab for 12 hours at some god forsaken jct in west Chicago looking at a boxcar with a FRED for company.

Most if not ALL the CP engines we had going thru Michigan had a foul, zoo like smell to them when you walked out the engineers side door to the rear. Then it dawned on me...the swine pee out the door. Not over the side, not in the john in the nose...just.. OUT THE DOOR. Never saw that on our power, never dawned on anyone here to do it I guess.
Enjoy Every Sandwich.
