A lot of good info in that article.
You realize how bad things were under Pan Am when CSX points out they had to "improve walking conditions" in Rigby yard. Pan Am apparently was willing to take a chance on people getting hurt rather than spend money.
I would say out of anywhere I spent the majority of my time on Guilford working in Deerfield. The conditions were appalling. No lights in the yard, no clearance between tracks - if you're riding a shove or a car derails and you're between tracks you're dead. Tripping hazards like broken ties, discarded air hoses, brake shoes and even knuckles. Spilled nasty laden all over between tracks like barley and oats that brew into a rotten oatmeal in the summer. Tracls so bad they are all 5 mph. The whole place should have been OOS.
I can understand this is a huge move that will effect employees lives but it's hard to grasp how some are holding onto anything to do with that place.
