Bad Lineups Email Address

All,

With Movement Planner making adjustments to the lineups, we are asking that everyone please email lineups to our bad line ups email address.

badlineups@blet104.org

Please do this from the emulator.  Press  F10 to show the non-projection lineup.  Press  F6  to email, please send as a text file.

These lineups are going to be databased and the tracked for handling with management regarding movement planner.  At the next meeting, we will attempt to show how we intend to display the data.

Thank you everyone for your assistance!

Ride App

Here are a few key points:

  • The RIDE mobile app is designed to show the location of the van the same way Uber, Lyft and other ridesharing apps show a driver is headed to pick you up.
  • This first release allows employees to view the location of the van and real-time ETA.
  • Right now, RIDE is only available on employee-issued iPads, and won’t work on cell phones (even if issued by BNSF).
  • The app will be automatically pushed to employee-issued iPad by Wednesday morning, June 24.

More information can be found on BNSF Connect

Throttle Limitation and Train Profiles

Please take note: After June 15th any throttle violation will be handled with an investigation and through the PEPA policy.

Do not keep throttle throughout ascending grade.  Exceeding throttle limit while traveling at 15mph or more is a violation of ABTH 106.7 period.

Example:

14mph = Grab a notch
15mph = Follow Throttle Limit

Will need to ensure we always update after work enroute to adjust for changes in Profile.

Example:

Pickup and Setouts @ Yardley.

Let RFE know, before tie-up, if DS gives verbal instructions to exceed.

VTR any and all changes to Profile.
