I guess the BNSF has done away with engineers now. According to the article the conductor did everything the engineer does (did).

Seems the UTU has finally outwitted the BLET!

We both know that this a typical typographical error by the UNEDUCATED MEDIA. They even say the driver of the train, we have to let them know there are no STEERING WHEELS. But that's the public for ya. Our world is different as you know. And they also expect us to stop at crossings for them, and limit the whistle blowing. Well when the come up with a better driver and more knowledgeable person, then we may make the changes needed.
