True but Hunter hasn't sent office staff to drive those trains. I believe this policy was in place before he even came into the picture.

My point is if I am running my company I would want my employees to understand the business and have respect for what someone else does to help build that sense of pride. Maybe I am an odd duckling that no I don't want to drive trains for a living but it would be cool to learn how to drive one.
