Remarks & Notes
“Sippy Cup Takes the Hill”
Sippy Cup?! You say “Sippy what?!” Yeah, well that’s our diminutive for our colleague Ryan Reierson. Yup. Lilliputian and livin' the dream while breakin’ off his nineteenth year of life on his way to becoming a certified Locomotive Engineer under the watchful tutelage of Steven Welch. Ryan's in charge of EWG train HL20 with some 50 Big Bend grain-loaded PS2’s, ACF’s and a couple of BNSF hoppers in tow, takin’ the ruling 1.0-1.2% of Wilbur Hill with 10,200 horses out front. No worries. He’s got this. Regardless of his stature, he is respected for his quiet, good-natured manner, and professional work ethic making him an integral part of the EWG Brotherhood. I bet he’s standin’ tall inside right now! Who of us wouldn’t be: runnin’ a venerable former Cotton Belt SD40T-2 in notch eight? Roger that? (20Nov17 ©)
