Commuter Ops

Public·93 members

Is there any effort being made to get brakemen back on the crews? Got ordered last night as extra to accompany conductor due to safety concerns about passengers. I saw first hand while the numbers are low, the passengers that ARE riding aren’t your typical commuter. Definitely some shifty characters on board. Day and night trains. We had a medical emergency that turned out to be a false alarm, but had I not been there the conductor would have had to check it out solo. Not safe in my opinion at all. Not sure how anyone else feels about that. I assume the same.
