Congrats on the new job, but please don't joke about hitting people and getting time off for it. It is one of the most devastating things to experience as a railroader. I haven't had it happen to me yet, but there have been a few close calls and your heart just stops. I'm not sure what the railroads in the states are like, but we preach safety. You might get sick of hearing about it and supervisors riding your ass over little things, but I just had a guy lose his leg up north... he's lucky he survived, and it was over a stupid rule violation.
But congrats again, and have fun. Don't take no shit from the old timers either!

Hey canadian girl, I hope I don't hit someone, as much as I joke about it,, I would hate to hurt someone, and yeah ill hold my ground.

Just count your blessings, and don't take it for granted. A lot of people dont have jobs. Yours can also easily get took from you. Thank god everyday for your job. Go to work do your best and don't outsmart your common sense. Is what the song says. Just listen to what they tell you. Take any advice. Expesialy if it's free. Good luck man.

Congratulations ben10!!! I'm a conductor/engineer for 2 shortlines here in western PA. Your job (life) with the UP will be a lot different than on a shortline but you will be making a great living and will have a decent retirement. Congrats again and good luck!!

Take care,
