Wasn't sure where to put this, so I created a new topic here:
 
Quoting from Progressive Railroading:
Quote:
President Donald Trump yesterday announced his intent to nominate Ronald Batory to serve as administrator of the Federal Railroad Administration (FRA).  
 
Batory has more than 45 years of rail industry experience and most recently served as president and chief operating officer of Conrail.

Looks like another appointment of someone with real experience in the area he is supposed to deal with.
 
The general consensus from those commenting is that this is a real professional railroader, not some political hack or buddy. One person said, "started as a breakman."

Well, he will, if he follows the Trump guidelines, get a lot of push-back from people nd organizations invested in the regulations as they exist. Like a lot of other things - will just have wait, watch, and see.
