      Looks like a pile of scrap iron for someone now.

      That line from article,

      "“We know that, for example, the government is already reviewing rules regarding crew fatigue and we’re hoping to see regulations coming out shortly out of that process,” he said."

      Brings to mind things like, https://calgaryherald.com/business/local-business/cp-rail-union-at-odds-over-worker-fatigue

      CP Rail, union at odds over worker fatigue

      Canadian Pacific Railway is butting heads with one of its unions over its workplace fatigue practices, saying its efforts to bring predictable schedules and mandatory time-off periods to employees are being "thwarted at every turn."

      I hated on call type work, did it for several years, saw 3 co-workers wad their trucks up into balls of metal  because of it and pretty much swore I would never do that again, it’s somtimes difficult to maintain a scheduled work schedule for a trucker but since I now own and operate my own truck I can have some say over things. I have a nephew who is an engineer for UP and have not talked too much with him about scheduling and how it affects him.
