How Many Crew Members

Postby Bigt » Wed Nov 11, 2015 1:52 pm

What is the current number of crew members required on trains - by law, or, union agreement?
Does a three man crew still exist anywhere on the system? And, if there are still such a thing as
a dedicated yard job, how many crewmen would be used? Thanks in advance.

Normal road crew is 2 men - Conductor & Engineer. There are frequently Engineers and Conductors in training bringing the crew size up to 3 or 4.

In specific yards there are 1 man Remote Jobs.
