    Haha, It's hard for foamers to hear this!
    As a railroad worker myself, I can't stand the damn things. And when I meet new people, they find out what I do, and all they want to talk about is trains.

    Sad to see another suicide by train. Don't know how you guys deal with the PTSD.
    I pulled the pin on Sept 4th 2018 and still think it sux to be you anytime I see someone having to work for a living. Too much changed in my carrier and made going to work akin to getting a tooth pulled or a colonoscopy.
    Stick it out since the light at the end of the tunnel is a sweet deposit every month.

    In this case nobody was injured, I wouldn’t post a picture of that. An old man got stuck between the main and siding and was out of his car we hit it.
    Congrats on making it to retirement, I’m hoping I can make it to 30.

    I retired last November. If you'd asked me about my retirement 2 years ago I'd have shaken my head and laughed at the possibility. Last January, I started doing some financial figuring and realized it might work. I threw in the towel in September and turned in all of my equipment on October 29th. (I gave 2 months notice and trained my replacement. He retired shortly after I did. Go figure.) That was after 32 years with my last employer and 50 years of paid labor over all. This is the longest I've been unemployed since I was 17. I'm still getting it figured out. Hang in there, retirement will be here before you know it.

    Got two cruise boats at work this month. 14 days to get it done. 24 hours a day 7 days a week. When this comes off another goes on within 2 days. Busy April. Here are some pics of access inserts we cut out to get machinery replaced. Much more going on.

    Yep hydro is a big part of what I touch, mostly dealing with BPA's product from a series of dams along the Columbia. What a coincidence on this forum. How do you like being a wireman for hydro?
