Nothing against you powerpro-----but what is so scary to me is that the railroad can put a totally new guy just hired on in the last couple of months on a rco crew in charge of stopping a 6-7 ton cut of cars. Just like Conrailengineer said its all about feel---and you don't have any operating one of these. Don't get me wrong-some young guys may be able to perform safely at this-if they can thats great. I would recommend to take it real slow---and to not let them rush you. When they start rushing you and you get careless and have a small mishap-----they wont be there for you when your out of service. Seen that to many times.
