MBCR should get ready to cry and whine some more I guess.

Wow. They are using the same blue and green we have on our uniforms at work!

Are you referring to the MBCR uniforms? Because those are blue and yellow.

Do you really think someone wouldn't know the color scheme of his own uniform?

You know me all too well..... :-D

I am back in the Concord store again, for awhile. Managers tend to stay in one store, which is fine with me. I can see and hear the trains pass by.

Same colors as the company I work for as well (not MBCR).

I wonder if they're all getting them from the same place? :-D

As this is a rail forum, I wouldn't think that somebody would be referring to something like cumberland farms as a connection to a railroad entity.

He was referring to his own employer, as he stated. Not everyone here works for the railroad.

MBCR finally lost the law suit. Now we should see Keolis be more vocal about the take over.
