Talked with Some UP Managers on PTC Issues They have had some reports of crews putting a higher Equipment speed in PTC to allow to run couple miles an hour over speed without Over Speed warnings. Management has stated they will consider this as tampering with Safety Equipment Critical Rule violation and possible Desert! (Not Happened on STL Service Unit that they know of yet) Be sure when making pickups and setouts update PTC before departing.
If you have to do a soft cutout account PTC issues such as getting by signals and through form Bs You must stop at earliest convenience and reengage PTC.
