Doubling Up. Only the Conductor of the train or the Utility employees who have attached can double up or perform work on the train once the road crew is on the train in the Yard. This doesn't mean that the yard crew can't tie on a cut of cars or grab a cut of cars from the train. The yard Forman can't arm and test the EOT, and can't double up the train with the Road Conductor on the head end and the Utility is standing by at the rear of the train waiting to arm the EOT. The Road conductor must be the one doing the double while the Utility is at the hind end. If you are ordered to do this, remind the manager/supervisor of this and do not refuse. Write it up to me and I'll get it to the Legislative committee for resolution. localchairman577@yahoo.com
