I hope this post makes it onto this board. I tried to post a couple other times and it said awaiting moderator approval. Do I have to post in this forum first? Anyway, I am a Lead Signalman(woman) on a PTC construction crew for CSX transportation and I do enjoy my job. I hope this post gets through so I can ask a few other questions! To find out more about me and my work out here feel free to check out my blog.

(Nice to have another lady railfan on here! :)

I absolutely detest PTC, from what I've read about it

experience.) I'm pretty sure you will have to be very
careful what you say about PTC in a public forum like

Maybe you have some interesting railroading stories
that you can share? Reading those is always interesting.
