November 3 Breakman Training
« on: November 05, 2012, 10:15:51 AM »
As one of trainees I would like to acknowledge the obvious work and thought James and Jason put into structuring and conducting the "class". I feel the topics were well organized and presented by James and Jason. The limited Class size and spliting us into two smaller groups for part of the training along with doing what was taught I think were key factors in the success of the training. There was a lot of information provided during the class and I know it will take sometime at least for me to absorb it all or at least most of it.

I think, HANDS ON, training is the very best.

Good point, Fred. Except it should also include mention of hands off anything really HOT.

Would this become too racy a post if I were to mention that it also applies especially to passengers?  ::)

Breakman vs Brakeman?

One breaks things. The other brakes things.  We hope for the latter and not the former. Care in all things, even spelling.

Thanks, Paul, for highlighting the work James and Jason put into Saturday's training.  And a big THANK YOU to James and Jason for the training!
What–me worry?
