I recently retired from CONRAIL in January '08. Worked as a Train Dispatcher for the CSX in Selkirk NY during the Conrail acquisition. We will be renting one of the manufactured homes for the month of January 2008. We are going to try the village life to see if this is what we want.

Husband is in signals dept st Louis division. We live in southern Indiana.

Just put in for an inspectors job. Hope he gets it.

Over the years i have talked with many a dispatcher . The one he talks to now is in Jacksonville Florida.

Well have you decided whether the Villages are for you. Still renting or buying. What is the closest village near the Regional Hospital. I may need to work still as an RN.

My Grandpa retired from the Milwaukee Road - in 1958. I just love Trains!

My Grandson is a freak about trains too.

Soon to be 57 , my husband may need to be on occupational disability . Been off since June with a total knee replacement. The Doc compared his knees to carpet layers and roofers. If so , the house goes on the market and we will see you in the villages. I may want to work til 60. we may need the insurance for 2 years or so.

If your husband goes on disability, he can get insurance, for the both of you
with the railroad. Unlike SS. Railroad disability is very easy to get, if you have
30 years service and over 55.
