Simple solution. Give the AOs keys to the cabs. Leave the HHDs inside the train cabs.
Oh honey no. You have no idea. None at all.
Valvegear, I love your flawless logic there. A+ for you!
Just because it can’t happen now, doesn’t mean it’s not a workable option.
It seems like you all live in a box. Drivers can still have their private space, just have the AOs use the cab thats not in use.
APU AOs regularly travel in cabs, as again they think they’re slightly better than everyone else because they’re plain clothed! so people that don’t have the proper authority travel in cabs all the time.
My contention is that it already happens, so ‘brendan03’, take your pre-set ways of thinking somewhere else. Sure sometimes rules are bent, but this is an everyday occurrence. If the two are happy enough to travel together, then I’m sure you can charge your HHDs as well.
All staff high and low need to work together. And across all bus. units.
