Notice: Broken engine seats

A BLE locomotive engineer was severely injured when his locomotive seat broke from its pedestal. He is now bringing suit against his railroad company as well as the manufacturer of the seat.

The engineer's attorney, a BLE designated legal counsel, is seeking input from engineers who have had first-hand incidents with broken seats, or those who have heard of other engineers who have experienced incidents with broken seats. It is not important whether or not an injury occurred.

Anyone wishing to help this BLE Brother should contact his attorney at: (800) 624-4571.
