Should Meg Baker and CBS2 apologize?
My name is George H. Lightfoot III, and I am a Locomotive Engineer. I am appalled by the bogus reporting by CBS2 reporter Meg Baker of trains allegedly "speeding". She interviewed everyone but a qualified Locomotive Engineer as to how fast trains are operating on a given section of railroad over which New Jersey Transit operates. These people have no idea what they are talking about and even an unqualified railroad employee has no knowledge whatsoever of what we, as Locomotive Engineers do on a daily basis. The story can be viewed here:
My petition is to get both Meg Baker and CBS2 to apologize on the air for creating fear in the public and using total speculation and here say in creating the entire story. I encourage all Locomotive Engineers especially to sign this petition.
