Safety is of the first importance in the discharge of duty.
Obedience to the rules is essential to safety.
To enter or remain in the service is an assurance of willingness to obey the rules. Past practices not in conformity with the rules will not be accepted as an excuse for non-compliance.
The service demands the faithful, intelligent and courteous discharge of duty. Courteous, considerate treatment of patrons is of great importance in retaining and increasing our volume of business, and therefore, governs the extent of opportunity for employment in the railroad's service.
To obtain promotion, ability must be shown for greater responsibility.
