  • Aches and Pains

    Nice to see cold weather finally get here and catch up with the season. For some "mature" (notice I didn't say "older" like myself) Railroaders this cooler weather brings out the aches and pains most associate with aging.
    This is partially true BUT how many of us worked when it was still permissible to mount and dismount moving equiptment? You just may be experiencing the after effects of that practice. These aches and pains in the feet, ankles, knees or hips can also be caused by walking on uneven ground and large mainline ballast in yards.
    Should you be experiencing ANY of these problems, contact a FELA Attorney for advice as to what steps are available to you.
    This could be the time to check on this if you are considering retirement.
