Yahoo!! I've passed my NORAC qualifying exams!!-->
after entering the NJ transit Locomotive Engineer Training Program (LETP for short), you have 60 days to study for and pass the NORAC Operating Rules Exams (Northeast Ordinance Advisory Committee). The NORAC rules is approximately 900 of the most difficult to remember rules that I have ever read in my entire life.. You must then take an exam on those operating rules to prove that you are qualified on them. Passing grade is 85%, and the test is broken up into 13 sections, some sections as small as 12 questions. You must score 85% on each section, if not, you must retake the portions that you failed the next day. If you do not pass on the retake, you are sent on your way..
The past two weeks, I've been studying like a mad person, and it paid off.. I passed all 13 sections on the first try, although I did get an 85 on the Form D movement permit section.. (any railroad buffs out there would know what a Form D is)
I know get to move on in the course, and I will be getting a 5% pay raise for being promoted as well.. In the next 3-4 weeks, I'll be making engine moves in the yard, and then start qualifying on the physical characteristics of the Hoboken division...
Wish me luck...

Not that this was not expected! I am sure you feel like that ton of bricks has been lifted!!! Let me know if you are still detailing.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Yea, though I drive in the Valley of the Shadow of the V8, I shall fear no V8 for the V6 is with me. Thy 2.7 liters and thy 2 K04's comfort me. Thou shall prepare boost at my call against the V8 that troubles me. Thou annointest my V6 with Mobil One Oil, and my psi shall runneth over. Thy loving smoothness and torqueness shall follow me all the days of my driving and I will dwell in the house of the V6 Bi-Turbo forever!!!!!!
