Amen to that BMC, remember a few years ago when "Along The Track" had the story about the engineer on the greenport scoot?
I'll explain to the rest in here...
"Along The Track" is an employee newsletter, it used to have stories of interest of Railroading on the LIRR, now it is nothing more then a political correct company propaganda sheet. ( oh this month is-fill in the blank-month.)
When it still had some stories of interest, it featured the engineer on the greenport scoot, how he reported early in the morning, ran the equipment out to green port, interacted with the local farmers, etc.
There were stories of how he opened the luncheonette in greenport ( there used to be one in the station building)and had it ready for the owner, how he dropped newspapers at various locations for the locals, how he would blow the horn at certain locations to say hello to the locals, and rush to make up time on certain trains.
You guessed it...
Management downloaded the black box on the engine a few weeks later, got him for speeding (making up time) Unauthorized use of the horn (blowing to say hi to the farmers) running ahead of time in manual block territory ( getting to greenport early to open up) and other charges.
At the time, this engineer was on the top of the roster, and they almost fired him, as it was he was suspended for weeks.
So if an engineer or conductor gives you a "look behind the scenes" ok to share it in general, just dont give out too much info.
