Employees must be accountable for their actions. A condition for employment in most of today's American industries is following the rules and processes the company has established. Railways and industry as a whole is very different today than in the 70's. Regardless, I still feel a need to assure railroad employees feel comfortable when they see me around and don't perceive me as a spy. I still feel it's important to show them respect and not be overly intrusive or threatening while they are performing their jobs. I may own NS stock as well as some from a couple of other "lesser" railroads but my "Hobby" is railroading; it's not my job.
