STLE Pittsburgh Section Meeting

Tuesday, February 18, 2014

05:30 PM - 08:30 PM


Join the Pittsburgh Section for their February Meeting titled 21 Years Work'n on the Railroad... Oil Control Program

Pittsburgh Section Technical Meeting

Topic: 21 Years Work’n on the Railroad… Oil Control Program

Presenter: Mr. James Doyle, Conrail (retired)

Date/Time: Tuesday, February 18, 2014

Abstract:
Our February meeting we welcome a return visit from Mr. James Doyle, a retired lubrication specialist of the former Conrail at their Conway yards. Mr. Doyle for seven years was in the retailing field before joining Conrail in 1978. He then spent 21 years in Conrail’s Oil Control Program. During this time their program progressed from a very basic lab to a state-of-the-art-program for call 1 railroads. Jim will further discuss how this program developed and the implications this had on the railroad. Mr. Doyle graduated with a B.A. degree in history from Geneva College in 1971. (How fitting that Jim’s degree is in history because this presentation will offer a fabulous history lesson regarding the progression of lubrication programs in recent decades.)
