Well, it's not a pretty picture,


but in the interest of our collective mental health here's what we look and act like from the bartenders point of view. I'm not sure what will actually end up in this area but relatives and significant others of Bartenders are invited to post pictures and comments. Maybe we civilians can pick up some subtle nuances of barcar protocol. For starters, here is the official lingo on the service offered on my barcar:

Preparing A Train for Service

Bar/Café Service                    

Bar and café car service is offered on selected trains for the convenience of our customers. Bartenders will obey the instructions of the Conductor, but the Conductor shall issue only such reasonable orders as are absolutely necessary to the operation of the train.

When portable bar carts are used, Conductors will designate a suitable location for the cart to be placed, consistent with door operation, traffic patterns and other considerations.

All crewmembers are reminded that bar/café service is highly popular with customers and an important source of revenue for the railroad, and that every courtesy and consideration shall be offered to bartenders and patrons.

Crewmembers will not congregate at or near the bar, engage bartenders in unnecessary conversation, nor give any appearance of consuming alcoholic beverages.

Well, I'm one of the Bartenders that work's there soon to be Sister In Laws. Mr. Neil Nerau rides on the BarCar usually to Connecticut. He's marrying my sister Tina.
He's an alright kinda guy I guess, please tip him as much as you can so they can afford to get their own place so they don't have to live with me!! Nah, I love him too! Gotta run, I will be checking out this WEB Site occasionally, oh, tell Mr. Jerry McGuire I said Hi!
Sister In Law of Bar Car Bartender!
