Brothers,

when you are called from the Jp016 xe10 for anything other than patching a jp016 re31/re21 train(must have a corresponding id)you are entitled to a basin rate of pay, not a de10 rate.if you are however patching a re31 train its ot after 8 or mileage.below I have put in the parameters of that claim. and if you are called for a long pool train id , but work something else you are entitled to the flat rate.

remember its the work you performed,not the service you were called for

Limit axles of power when switching

Brothers,

Please be aware when building trains or switching with road power. This is a easy failure for the company.

Due to a derailment we had on December 6th the company has  added  switching restrictions that  limit power to 24 axles when switching and or  building trains with road power
