I do not plan on riding Amtrak until mask mandates are gone. Will either drive or just fly and deal with it. Personal protective equipment should be optional

Nom Nom Nom chicken parmigiana consumed.

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

Actually wouldn’t most Amtrak workers be union?

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.

I agree with AARR, drop the political discussion. It won’t end well.

Hiked Mount Talbert. Not much of a mountain but still a very beautiful hike. Towering trees. Very neat.

It’s sad that so many people are so 2 dimensional

Which, could not be further from the truth

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

What company? If Ford mandates vaccines I’m going to be looking

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

Chip, no one has posted in your Music Musings in a while and I enjoy reading the posts there.

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
@ AARR « Wed 7:30:13 pm »
Trainman just don’t respond to his comments anymore
@ Trainman2223 « Wed 7:29:31 pm »
if my head is up....then where will the broom go?

It’s hard for me to not believe that this is all about control and not necessarily about health but I’m not going to go there. I feel I’m already wearing out my welcome as it is.

That kind of attitude will not encourage more people to get vaccinated Dan

I believe it would actually be more screwed up if ti was for that; however most of us know nothing about the situation.

I think the auto parts business is gone but that same warehouse could be used for LCL business
@ AARR « Wed 9:19:55 am »
NS has a large warehouse in Melvindale that not so long ago was used to load box cars with autoparts from local plants and ship it in units to various locations
@ AARR « Wed 9:18:59 am »
Seems like there’s a lot of conversation by railfans about railroads picking up loose car load traffic and NS is doing something to try and get it back
