CODE YELLOW, CODE BROWN.

In my profession in my area at least, it is Signal 100 or Signal 200.

Oooh, that's a good one. I've been hesitant to use Code Yellow/Brown around my patients and their family for fear they could put 1 and 2 together (no pun intended)

But Signal 200. Ha, I don't think they'll catch that. Can't wait to use it tomorrow (hopefully won't have to). Hehe.

We used to have code yellow and code brown where I work, but when 9/11 hit the fan, code brown became an official code, meaning a shooting situation. Suddenly yelling code brown in the men's restroom in a 210,000 sqft store full of people was not the best idea...

The pictures posted by tag are exactly what I thought a locomotive toilet would look like. I think I'd probably do everything in my power to hold it as long as I could. Or maybe while held up in a siding, grab the TP and go find a nearby tree.

Ive been inside the cabs of several locomotives but have never noticed a door that says "bathroom" or "toilet" Are they marked in any special way? Or could it be that the locomotives Ive been in are too old to have had them?

There are no exterior shots of this girl in the DB "yet", but look at the pic in my photog profile to see a profile nose shot of it.

Below is another shot that I took during the ride. The maroon cushioned edge is the top of the door, down into the nose and throne. The open door from the photo above is just off shot to the left.

Some GE U-Series locomotives had a toilet compartment behind the cab - not too bad. Others had them in the (low) nose, accessible by a tiny steel door. I remember being impressed the first time I saw a Dash-2 with its stairway and handrail going down to a reasonable-sized door. EMD E and F units had porcelain toilets at the rear of the car body - pretty noisy place to sit and contemplate!

You have to shrink'em down for web size. Are you doing that?

Red Zone? BNsf crews say "in between" on the radio, it means the same thing. Set and centered.

CSX guys refer to it as going in between the "cut" or the "gap".
