Cool!  Thanks for the presentation.

Item: I fail to understand why so many locomotive engineers cannot properly sound whistle signal 14L when approaching grade crossings?  Retired BNSF engineer David Wiegant, who is current president of the Railroad Evangelistic Association* told me: BNSF is "heavy" on 14L and stake out empoyees to insure that 14L is properly sounded!  This is in New Mexico where David resides.  I don't know about the remainder of the system.  Perhaps some OGR members who railfan BNSF can shed some additional light on this subject?
