The Hyundai-Rotem cab cars put the cab on the upper level for better visibility and crew safety. They do not have an end door though, so they can't just be plunked in the middle of a train.

It's not in so much of trying to follow the rule book, but rather how much you are worth to a trainmaster.
Trainmasters love to hurt new hires because of the fact A) they can and B) their unfamiliarity with the whole way the railroad is run.

Out of curiosity, why would there need to be engines on both ends of a train that isn't particularly long or abnormal-looking?

It was built as a single ended car, and a Tandy made it double ended by linking the new controls to the original ones via write linkage. Every time you hit one if the pedals on the new end, you had to hope and pray that the linkage was still intact, therefore giving you the desired action. I've heard it was especially fun when you were braking.

Also, thanks to an overzealous electrician, it had no emergency braking. None. If your dynamic brakes failed, you'd better hope that you'd be on level ground soon. It happened once on the steepest grade of the line. I think that was the last time it ran.

In the interest of full disclosure, everything I know about that car (save for the scrapping) is secondhand from the many mechanics and motormen that did operate it.

Got a ticket in Nashville Tennessee for sleeping on CSX property. It was on 1000 Gay St. I thought that was funny. Saw a band I like that same day (Full of Hell). Hopped out. I've been in Chattanooga/Cleveland Tennessee for about a week now. Bouncing back and forth between the two. 3 friends got arrested for public intoxication. 2 hitched down to Atlanta Georgia a few days ago and returned today. My road dogs pup is now 1 year old. Look at her.

During tunnels I just hold my dog down. Something about shallow breathing idk. I only do this on really long tunnels but sometimes I'll pull out a plastic garbage bag and let it fill with air before hand and put her face in it if she looks like she can't breathe. My dog growls, she's not a barker but she is trained well enough that when I say "quite in the library" she'll stop.

>> No.125687  

>>125648
F.Y.I. the bag over her nose could end up hurting her more than helping her. Due to her recycling more Carbon Dioxide than Oxygen in the bag. I'm not sure of a dog's respiration rate but I would assume it increases when she's nervous. What you might consider doing is wetting a towel, sock, etc.. then holding that over her muzzle. I don't believe there's a huge lack of Oxygen in tunnels (at least with diesel locos). You'd mainly wanna protect her from the soot and other particulate put out by them. If you hold the towel by the muzzle you can keep her mouth closed and make sure she only breathes through her nose.

Btw that quiet in the library thing is cute af. I gotta teach my next dog to do that.

Yeah, I've never gone through a tunnel that felt all that bad. I've never done the bag thing but my friend has. I mostly just hold her down during tunnels. My friends dog also tried to jump out of a moving boxcar right as we were going into a tunnel once. Luckily I managed to grab her collar right in time, she was leashed to a pack the rest of the ride. Speaking of dogs, I met up with my old road dog a couple of days ago and he has this patch of my face.

Convince your friend to get a harness (super cheap if you get it at a shelter, possibly even free depending on the shelter). If the dog tries the jumping stunt again it could mean the difference between catching her, and catching her with a broken neck..

>>125716
I think everyone here keeps you in our thoughts and prayers. I don't work for the railroad, so my perspective is skewed but I've got no problem with people who train hop as long as they're careful. Psychotic hobos who train hop their way to my campus, then wander around threatening people are another story.. If you ever get to Houston post here with as much warning as you can give (I don't always check that often anymore) and I'll take you out for lunch.
