Bernie Feltman General Did you notice the "door stop" being used on the brakeman's door? 6/8/2014 11:58:51 AM
Gary Richards jr. General Fantastic shot & catch!! 6/9/2014 12:32:51 AM
William H. Davis Jr. General Thanks, yes, the door stop annoyed me, I'd rather the door been closed, but it's more tolerable when the door is open on conventional cabs than widecabs, I sympathize with the crew, I know how hot it can be riding these in the hot spring & summer months 6/9/2014 7:33:23 AM
Fred Stuckmann General We used flow though ventilation as well, a 50 mph breeze on a 90 degree day made it somewhat tolerable. Nice shot. 6/9/2014 4:02:36 PM
William H. Davis Jr. General Yes, I agree, I have done that as well, feels nice after you've been sweating profusely sitting still for hours waiting on meets, Thanks 6/9/2014 7:18:44 PM
