Why US railroaders don't wear uniforms? Stupid baseball caps, t-shirts and those tommy helmets which look like a shitter. In Europe we wear blue shirts, sometimes ties, and peaked caps (and use coveralls when we can get ourselves dirty, eg. when coupling cars) and some railways eg. Russian have full blown ranks and military-style uniforms

Uniforms are fucking gay
Oh boy (9 months ago)
juk123 45 here they work on the railroad. No military relation or order at all. Everyone knows who the bosses are because they dress more business like. Uniforms would get tore to hell working on the railroad the US and there’s no way you’d get people carrying coveralls to put on over a uniform when you think you might get dirty. That would waste too much time. Interesting difference in the two, I never knew there was that much difference. Now, passenger trains, those workers wear uniforms but they don’t do the same work as freight railroaders do

@Oh boy why? They add esteem to the profession and are the way to promote work culture of order, punctuality and respect. In many European countries particularly those whose railways follow German operating practices, you don't 'work' on the railway, you SERVE. And the driver/engineer or any other worker does not come to work, he or she reports for duty

Different culture is the main reason but uniforms just look dumb.

Oh, please, who came up with this sh!t? I've climbed all over rolling stock of every kind to set and release hand brakes. Some of those hand brakes I set after being dropped into a very short spur.

In the old days you had one extremity for yourself and other for the railroad. Today putting anything that is a part of your body close to moving rolling stock is considered a grave offence against safety

Jon Jukes that is what professional railroad people call railfans (people who like to go out for the specific purpose of watching trains and railroad activity)

Inspect the extension shaft to make sure it is not bent.

It took 8 minuts for them to explain something that that takes about 3 minutes to explain.

its the era of oversight and micro management for the sake of compliance. We are all back in third grade and we have to have someone sign off that we learned this crap as if they were our parents.

Why is racism in everything. We are all human beings. Stop the hate. Racism and making racist comments shows a level of immaturity and exhibits the person making those types of comments normally have a very low IQ and probably dropped out of HS, usually at or around the seventh or eight grade.
Jon Jukes (1 year ago)
Exactly, they need to get off his brake stick!

While he's fooling with that fool stick i could have the brake set or release. We use to ride the top of boxcars to relay hand signals back in the 60s.
BossSpringsteen69 (2 years ago)
This is a common thing which started probably 10 years ago. This is so brakemen and Conductors dont have to climb on the cars. Lawyers run railroads nowadays that is why there a thousands new rules over the last several years that make no sense but crews must perform them.

Frank, did your mommy type that for you?
RR 1976 (1 year ago)
Give the guy a break. He's probably just not used to doing videos like this. Some folks (of all races) are nervous when they are doing videos when that's not really thier thing. He's obviously just a regular employee and he was asked by Norfolk Southern to do this. He's just doing his job.

He has a far better job than you ever will.

He is an NS robot.
