Excuse me Jumbotusk, but there is ONE thing I do NOT appreciate you doing here.

You NEVER pass yourself off as moderatour of this Forum, I run this board, NOT you.

I'm the only one authorized to tell folks here to go back on topic or to enforce other rules, not you. I'm gonna have to issue you a warning.

I'm sorry, I did not mean to pass my self off as the Moderator.

You may have gotten that idea from the end of my post. That was merely the signature that was appended to my post. Just as some other people put quotes, that happened to be mine. I like to mix it up rather than always have the same thing.

How do I become Conductor?

It seems like fun to take tickets, open the doors, blow the whistle and tell people what they can and cannot do.

Does anyone else want to be one also?

I think I am talking about a conductor instead. Whoops.

How do you become one on the T?

All right, thanks for understanding now. Just don't let it happen again.

As for becoming commuter conductor, you'll have to go to MBCR and put your name on a lottery drawing, similar to the MBTA, but I might be wrong. maybe Mr. CSX Conductor or ST214 may know that.

Being a conductor is not all fun and games, I had the pleasure to work with one for a day and I must say it was a great experience but they do have a lot of responsibilities like switches/signals, passengers, safety, tickets/money, and a lot more. A day full of delays and other service disruption can be a big headache as I found when I had the chance to experience it myself.

MBCR: does it the old fashioned way, submit resume. No lottery.

MBTA: still does the lottery thing for bu drivers, motormen and guards.

Ok, so when the Lechemere service comes back this summer, what will the setup be for each branch? Is it going to back to old schedule?

B Boston College - Gov' Ctr
C Cleveland Circle - North Station
D Riverside - Govt Ctr
E Lechemere - Heath Street

I also wonder if they will do the occassional Government center to Lechmere runs.
