I discovered something neat about the Bronco Warthog/Raptor that hasn’t leaked out into the public yet and I’m way more giddy about that than I should be.

I’m not an AM’er either. But I’ve had a 7am start time for 49+ years. Looking forward to retirement for that reason only. I’m planning on working part time and no earlier than 8 is a requirement LOL. My body clock syncs pretty good with the sun coming up.

Exactly. I’m not riding until I can enjoy it.I don’tever enjoy myself with a mask on. Reminds me of work.

All non-management jobs at Amtrak are union positions (closed shop). If you were to move into a management position from your union job, you have the option to maintain paying your dues which freezes your roster number
@ Tom49801 « Wed 9:14:55 pm »
Amtrak is a closed shop, all employees except management are union employees. If you are a union employee
@ ~Z~ « Wed 8:53:42 pm »

Not surprised, they’re run by the government. I think pretty much all government employees nationwide are mandated except for USPS because they’re union.
@ Raildudes dad « Wed 7:58:34 pm »
I agree with AARR, drop the political discussion. It won’t end well.
@ Jetlink « Wed 7:55:31 pm »
Hiked Mount Talbert. Not much of a mountain but still a very beautiful hike. Towering trees. Very neat.

That’s what happened to me at CSX, Chip. Because I wasn’t a democrat-worshiper, everyone thought I was a hardcore Trumper republican

I’ve been meaning to add a new post to it but they cranked up our production this week so I haven’t been getting out of work as early as I was
@ AARR « Wed 7:37:09 pm »
I’m learning a few things from that thread
@ AARR « Wed 7:36:36 pm »
Chip, no one has posted in your Music Musings in a while and I enjoy reading the posts there.
@ Chip « Wed 7:35:14 pm »
I’m registered as independent but identify myself as libertarian.
@ AARR « Wed 7:35:13 pm »
Trainman, my company is hiring and your preference is not an issue.
@ Chip « Wed 7:33:20 pm »
The funny thing is despite what some former friends think of me im not this super right wing conservative guy. If they knew me as well as in thought they did they would realize I’m actually quite liberal when it comes to social issues. Above all else the government is too darn big and needs to stay the heck out of our day to day lives
@ AARR « Wed 7:32:26 pm »
Unfortunately, COVID has become political which is why I stay away from it at this board.
@ AARR « Wed 7:31:27 pm »
I suggest not discussing politics here. I’ve been on this board for a long time and it never ends well.
@ Trainman2223 « Wed 7:31:16 pm »
@ Chip « Wed 7:30:44 pm »
It’s a waste of time to discuss anything political with a lot of people these days
