Default Siemens Transportation

For anyone in Canada or working for this company. Do they still run some of the worst equipment on the road or has that situation improved?

You might want to re-read Site Rule 13.

As general forum netiquette, bumping threads and/or posting on old threads really isn't the done thing.

HTH.

So, am I supposed to start a new thread with exactly the same question????

I assume this is a new rule? Never cam across it in the 6000 odd posts of my previous life!

No, you just assume nobody can answer it and don't hassle them to do so!

And no, it's not a new rule. You've been on the forum since 2009, it's certainly been in effect for at least the past couple of years.

.....and since around 2005 under my old user name

So, by bumping a thread, I am hassling people to respond?

I use many forums and this is the first time I have come across the, 'no bumping rule'! I shall bear it in mind

Oh, I know. I was simply pointing out that the rule's been in place for a while and was definitely in place when you signed up (and ticked the box to say you'd read the site rules ;-)) for the third time in Jan this year.

And its a rule we enforce in the serious Aussie forums (as opposed to meet-ups and Barbe) so Fluffy should be well aware of what his limitations are.

snowstorm is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: Siemens Transportation

I was out there this time last year & nothing has changed with them. Except that they employ loads of flip flops now & Kindersley don't do US.
I saw my old truck that I had there in 2007 still working & it was 12 years old & a proper heap when I had it!!
They also have a bad reputation for how they treat their drivers.
Best avoided is my advice.
